A perfect walk for a hot day. The path is shaded and the lower elevation is pleasantly cool.

This easy 3.1-mile trail, marked in blue, gets its name from the American olive tree which is abundant along the path. The trail is plentiful with ferns which means the area is low lying, damp and nicely shaded.

Directions: From Norfolk, VA, Take Interstate 64 to Exit 282, Northampton Boulevard/U.S. 13. Continue on U.S. 13 for about 4 miles then turn right onto Shore Drive/U.S. 60 and travel approximately 3-4 miles. The park is accessed from both sides of the U.S. 60. Camping and visitor center is on the left and cabins are to the right. Osmanthus is off U.S. 60 on the right. Go past the contact station and veer left toward the restrooms. Begin on Bald Cypruss Trail for about 100 feet where Osmanthus branches off.
