Suffolk Seaboard Coastline Trail

Awesome trails

August, 2017 by secondamen

The trails are a great addition to the area, however they need to make sure they don't add too much parking to it so it doesn't get overloaded like everything else in Hampton Roads. You don't want to have to duck and weave a million people if you're walking or riding.

Suffolk Seaboard Coastline Trail

Now a Little Longer

July, 2017 by djzilber

This is a great flat and wide paved beginner trail. It has now been extended east and is 3.5 miles long. Some parking, port-a-john, and bike repair station with tools at each trail head.

Suffolk Seaboard Coastline Trail

Love the trail but needs more parking

April, 2017 by treese1022

My family and I love this trail. We went alot last year. Today, was our first trip of the year. We arrived at 1030 am (its a Thursday) and all of the spots were taken and vehicles were parallel parked on the grass. Luckily, i squeezed in there but since the trail is expanding more people will want to use and 6 spots are nothing.

There is now a small 6 spot parking area off Towne Point Rd. just past the VFW hall at the Suffolk terminus.

Suffolk Seaboard Coastline Trail

Suffolk Seaboard Coastline Trail

February, 2017 by hgabriel

This is a really nice trail through beautiful central Suffolk. Adjacent to the historic Driver Village it makes for a great destination spot. The last 1 mile leg from Shoulders Hill Road to the Chesapeake City line has been recently completed now making the trail 3.3 miles one way. You can pick up the trail either at the Driver Village location or the Townpoint Road trail head / parking lot which is located on Townpoint Road adjacent to the Chesapeake city line. Beautiful foliage, glimpses of wildlife; and birds and butterflies galore! Crossing the Quaker Neck Bridge is pretty cool as well. Wheelchair users will love the smooth flat paved surface.

Suffolk Seaboard Coastline Trail

Great Trail

November, 2016 by bigbonthemove

This trail has been extended and now runs 3.5 miles in one direction. Trail was perfect for my easy 7 mile run. It would also be great for a bike ride . . . I'll be back!

Suffolk Seaboard Coastline Trail

best of suffolk

October, 2016 by mickvand

Love this trail to bike or hike with the dog. Lots of shade.

Cape Henry Trail

bike ride can be extended into Va. Beach town

September, 2016 by nannettess

We enter this trail by turning off of route 60 onto the entrance that says Trails. Plenty of parking about 1/4 mile in. From the parking lot it is 4 miles to the other end of the park. All hard packed sand and shady. What I like about this trail is that the ride can be extended. After the 4 miles follow the road to Atlantic Ave. Follow Atlantic Ave. on a off street path towards Va. Beach. At the Cavalier Hotel cross the street, turn left in one block and the entire bike path along the boardwalk is in front of you - with plenty of restaurants. This trip averages 17 miles for us - you can go farther.

Suffolk Seaboard Coastline Trail

Very nice. Easy. No hills. Paved. *Great for wheelchairs and elderly.

September, 2016 by kedj65

2.3 mile section from Driver to Shoulders Hill Rd.; 4.6 miles roundtrip. Paved parking available directly behind the Suffolk Humane Society (1st building when you turn off 337) in Driver. We were impressed from the start. Bike tire pump and repair tools are available for use at the parking area. The trail was very well maintained and there was no trash to speak of. Sept. 23rd ~there were plenty of flowers, trees, butterflies and birds. We were even able to get a few pictures of a Yellow-Billed Cuckoo. We both recall only 1 bench available in this 2.3 mile section (Kudos~ the bench was made out of recycled materials). Only a few other people using trail from 3pm-5:30 on Friday. There is a Porta Potty available in the parking area.

Nice, relaxing stroll. We'll definitely walk this portion of the trail again.
Thank you Suffolk Seaboard Coastline Trail.

Dismal Swamp Canal Trail (VA)

You Will See At Least One Bear

August, 2016 by wwilczynski

He's made of wood and stands at the northern trailhead - don't worry, he doesn't bite. But I know people that have seen them, and I ran across a half dozen turkeys once. What a great way to repurpose an old section of roadway. The trail is two lanes wide, and in relatively good shape. There are a few areas where it's open to vehicles, but they are few and far between. My only wish is that it was easier to see when the trail is being closed off for events - unless I'm looking in the wrong place. The City's Parks, Rec and Tourism calendar can be found at: http://www.cityofchesapeake.net/government/City-Departments/Departments/parks-recreation-tourism/calendar.htm. I even did an advanced search using keyword "dismal" - no dice. You have to click on each posted event to find out where it is being held.
