The 5-mile Noland Trail is a loop around Lake Maury in 550 acre Mariners Museum Park. This naturally wooded property in Newport News is the largest privately maintained park in the U.S. The 167-acre Lake Maury is named for the famed 19th-century oceanographer and native Virginian, Matthew Fontaine Maury. The gravel trail has 14 bridges, picnic areas, benches, and mile markers. Each fall, The Mariners’ Museum hosts a 10K run on the Noland Trail.
