The coolest, closest, local hike. I had no idea this hidden gem was right down the road from us!
Location: 2249 N. Landing Road, Virginia Beach, VA 23456. Beware…Apple maps took us to the wrong location. The trail entrance is close to the intersection of Princess Anne Road at N. Landing Road right across from the Municipal Center. I marked the actual location in maps for future reference, and it came up as 2437 N. Landing Road.

The trail was shaded the entire way. Footpath was paved with a bridge, and there is a Boy Scout trail we followed that was dirt and very muddy from the rain we have had. It was fun to spot the different trees and compare their bark and leaves. Specifically, we looked at Maple, Ash, Pine, and Oak. We hiked 1.1 miles in 36 minutes.
We saw the typical birds, tried to catch frogs in the creek, and spotted a beehive of some kind…possibly hornets?
Recommendations + Tips
This trail is close to our house, so we will definitely visit again. I can’t wait to go here for a run. Expect shoes to get dirty if you follow the Yellow Boy Scout Trail though!
