Easy is a relative term. This region of varying terrain offers interesting contours and views to explore. For this wiki, "Easy" is being defined as up to five miles (or so) and less than 1000 ft elevation change, thus suitable for hikers with limited or infrequent experience.
A subset of these are designated "Family/Beginner", thus great for families with at least elementary-aged children or new to hiking in this area. These are generally closer (thus less "ride time") and less distance/elevation change. Refer to the favorites list for recommendations, while below is a list of other opportunities.
Ride distance is from Colonial Heights.
