Completed and opened to the public in the Spring of 2019, the new Co-Op trail became the most popular hiking trail in Pocahontas. By the end of 2019, more than 18,000 users were counted, surpassing the total for the previously most popular hiking trail, the Beaver Lake trail. The aptly named "Co-Op Trail" was built cooperatively through efforts of volunteers, DCR staff, and a professional trail build funded in large part by a grant from local outdoor retailer, REI Co-Op. REI has been a constant supporter of outdoor conservation and outdoor recreation in the Richmond region.
The Co-Op trail head can be accessed near the day-use and Aquatic center.
REI Co-Op is located at 2020 Old Brick Rd, Glen Allen and online.
