The Railroad Ford Trail is a 1.5 mile, easy, hiking trail that follows an abandoned railroad grade through areas of hardwood forest to the end of a peninsula with outstanding views of Lake Anna. The railroad was originally built here in 1916 to carry lead and zinc ore from the nearby mines for use in ammunition during World War I, interpretive signs provide interesting information on this unique aspect of the area’s history. The trail loops back along the edge of Lake Anna and is accessible from the Old Pond Trail and the camping area.
