7+ miles of entirely wooded singletrack trails highlight this emerging park in Montvale, Va. Most stream crossings have foot bridges or are easily forded. Wildlife in this area include deer, turkey, squirrels and maybe even a coyote or 2. While the rest of the park is still in the development stage, the trail system is complete. From the park pavilion, you'll skirt around the perimeter of the large field, take a left at an opening to the creek crossing and there is a footbridge you can cross or you can make your way across the creek.
