Adventures in Virginia State Parks: State Park Triathlon!

Sat Aug 11, 10:00 AM - 6:30 PM
Twin Lakes State Park, Sailor's Creek State Park & High Bridge Trail State Park

THREE Challenges in THREE State Parks in ONE Day!
Paddle board at Twin Lakes State Park!
Hike at Sailor's Creek Battlefield Historic State Park!
Bike at High Bridge Trail State Park!

Our triathlon starts with beginner stand up paddle boarding at Twin Lakes State Park. After a picnic lunch, take a short hike in an historic setting with park interpreters at Sailor's Creek Battlefield State Park. Then to top off the day, our state park triathlon ends with a 16-mile bike ride from Rice to Farmville and back at the beautiful High Bridge Trail State Park. The highlight will be crossing High Bridge, a Virginia Historic Landmark, which is more than 2,400 feet long and 125 feet above the Appomattox River. You must provide your own helmet and adult bike in good, working condition (no children's bikes or road bikes - this is not a paved trail). 

Our triathlon begins at 10 AM at Twin Lakes State Park ($5 parking fee) and ends at High Bridge Trail State Park at 6:30 PM (Rice parking lot = $5 parking fee).
