Looking for something different to add to your exercise routine? This walking trail that wraps around the playground area, Health Department, aquatic facility and the back of the Betty Queen Center measures a little less than a mile and is available for Louisa citizens and visitors.
We think the best part of the trail is the fitness equipment that has been placed behind the playground that can be used to enhance your workout. And best of all, it is free and open seven days a week during daylight hours.

Small Country Campground Walking and Cycling Trail
Great for walkers and bicyclers, they pass through some of the beautiful hardwoods of Virginia. Virginia byways are some of the prettiest roads in the nation. Bicyclists love traveling these country roads. Two pass very close to the campground and running groups often use Small Country as a stop-over point as well. These drives are particularly beautiful with the autumn leaves.
