Mountain Biking in New Kent-Wahrani Park
Wahrani Nature Trails
Chesapeake Forest Products Company opened this trail property in 1973 to help develop a public appreciation for the natural environment. The trails were opened to mountain bikes in 2007 to make this facility a multi-use trail for bikers, walkers, and joggers. Trails are currently marked by colored blazes on trees along the trails. Future improvements and development plans include adding a picnic area, a fittrail system, a restroom facility and re-marking of the trails.
