Great place for a bike ride. Make sure you bring bug spray. The trails are beautiful, the waterfalls were amazing. Great place for a peaceful stroll. Wear walking or hiking shoes!

This park is not gated nor monitored, and not well-signed. You need to keep an eye out for the York River sign as you travel east out of Bancroft on Hwy 28. There is a path on each side of the river. There are three...More

A great little area to use for a hike and picnic or just as a rest stop. Beautiful scenery and good access.
