(2013-11-30 – Patrick, Erin, Ethan, Daphne, Elizabeth, Bryana, Jeff) – This was my initial visit to Pocahontas State Park.  There was ample parking off of Beach Road with trailer sized lots that can hold around 50 vehicles.  We took the Bright Hope trail, which was easy walking with small or gradual increases in elevation.  The main thing to watch for on this trail is the scat left by visiting horses.  All intersections are well marked making this trail easy to navigate.  I look forward to checking out some of the more scenic trails in the park.
