Loop 5 New Quarter Park

It's a short and easy hike. The woodland views are nice, but unremarkable. I would recommend combining loop 5 with another loop. Overall an enjoyable hike.

Night Hike At York River State Park
by

This part of the York River is beautiful by daylight but even more at night. Many Virginia State Parks have ranger led night hikes. York River State Park is no exception. We had to run the las half mile because the sky started flashing and booming. I made it to the car with only about 3 drops of rain. There were bats, bugs, two deer, a skunk, and much more. Some of my pictures came out too dark, but others are okay.

I had planed on spending the day Saturday but it rained all day. Why hike in the rain if you don't have to? So I went today and it was sunny and cool Perfect hiking weather!!! It was so beautiful. The trees had small leaves and the dogwood were in bloom.
