Henricus Park “A
good place to run is at Henricus
off Rt 10 going towards Chester.
The trail there is wide enough for vehicular traffic. It is almost 4
miles out, mostly dirt with some graveled parts, and marked every .5
mile. So you can get in about an 8 mile run. You find a few
walkers, bird watchers, some runners, and some bikers there. A very nice quiet place to run.” Thanx to Christy Gambill
