Walnut Creek is open daylight hours throughout the year.
Walnut Creek has 15 miles of trails. My hiking experience at Walnut Creek was enjoyable. There
trails were well kept and were clearly marked. With the trails also divided by difficulty it allows visitors
to hike on a trail based on what the visitor wants to do, visitors might want to have a nice lesure walk or
go on a vigorous hike.

My experience on Rivanna Trails varied. Rivanna trails is convenient
because it is in town.
There are a couple of sections missing from the trail that are very problematic for hikers.
There is a section that is blocked off by razor wire after Darden Towe Park and before
Locust Avenue. There is also a section missing at the Wollen Mills area and at Jordan Park
there is no bridge to cross the creek. When I was hiking I had to find my own way around these obstacles and
back to the trail.
