As much as I like beach walking, I also enjoy a walk in the woods. In previous posts, I recommended several of the wooded trails at First Landing State Park. Now I can recommend another great place to walk in the woods: the Stumpy Lake Natural Area. Located on Indian River Road in the southern part of Virginia Beach, Stumpy Lake Natural Area offers a mile and a half loop through the woods as well as a launch for kayaks and canoes. If it’s solitude you seek, this is the place.
