Bear Creek Lake State Park

The last week of February I had the opportunity to join a hike sponsored by Chesterfield Parks and Recreation to Bear Creek Lake State Park, led by naturalist Mark Battista. (read his article on the return of the osprey in the Chesterfield Observer

The park is west of Richmond on route 60 about an hour, just before you get to the town of Cumberland.  The park is full of trails, and a magnificient beaver dam!  See note on the detail map above of the approximate location.  The leaves on the trees weren’t out yet, so we had a good view thru the woods.  We saw one small snake and heard lots of frogs and birds. 

We stopped at the local ice cream store in town for a quick snack before heading home!  A good choice for a Spring outting.
