A friend first introduced us to this trail in April 2020. It quickly became a favorite. We have shared it with so many friends and families. The drive out to Tappahannock is beautiful, and the enchanted forest is magical. A visit to the Enchanted Forest is not complete without a visit to NN Burger.
Octogenarian Tom Rhodes has carved pop culture figures into trees on his 12-acre property since 2004. The public is welcome to try to find them all; there are over 80. We made a list the last time we were there so we could compare with friends.

Address: 211 Wallace St., Warsaw, VA
Directions: From US-360/Richmond Rd in town, just east of the stoplight intersection of Main St., turn south onto Wallace St. Drive a quarter-mile. You’ll see a paved pull-off on the left, leading to a trail into the woods.
- This hike is not stroller friendly or wheelchair accessible.
- The hike is short
- If the path has a piece of wood with “END” written on it, that means there are no more carvings past that point
- You may be lucky and find Tom out there carving. See if you can find where some new carvings have been started.
- Make sure to print off my checklist so you don’t miss any carvings
