New to the Richmond VA area!(first post)

Hello all! I’m new to the area and I have been wanting to find some good hikes or camping places outside of Pocahontas park (which is great but crowded) I usually have a pup with me and I just wanna get out and explore nature! Any suggestions on where to try? Any hiking buddies around the area?
