Southern Tip Bike & Hike Trail

Added route

May, 2019 by rv1175

You may also ride on quiet roads from the Wildlife Center down to walking trails which lead to a an old cannon barrel installation from WWII as well as riding down to a boat launch site with nice views of marshland and tidal areas-this added another 3.5 miles to our trip.Although we did not cross Rte 13 there is a State Park which may be accessed for additional miles as well.

Southern Tip Bike & Hike Trail

nice

April, 2019 by sunset987123

NH kayaker They have added another 2 miles to this trail. You can now start just south of the pottery store on route 13. Small gravel parking lot. You do ride along route 13 but most of the time there are trees blocking the road but you hear the traffic. You pass a lot of farm land. Ends at wildlife refuge center which wasn’t open the day we were there. Only open weekends till summer. Porta potty at wildlife center parking lot. So total trail was now 4.9 miles. Nicely paved. Great trip

Virginia Capital Trail

BEAUTIFUL 2-day ride and "RELATIVELY" FLAT"!

April, 2019 by utpaduke

On Wed 3Apr, four of us drove from Raleigh NC , parked in a secure paid-parking lot in Richmond VA, within 1 mile of Trail head. We backpacked requirements for an overnight stay. We biked to Green Spring Vacation Resort near the Jamestown Settlement. For a reasonable price, we got a 4-bedroom / 4-bathroom overnight rental. We Uber-ed to dinner and back. The next day we biked back to Richmond and made many stops to read the historical signs posted all along this beautiful paved trail. We were blessed with awesome weather and only 1 flat! I will describe this trail as 30% flat, 35% hill climbing, and 35% hill descending! Both days, we met a variety of riders going in both directions. The 2-day b-ride with about 55 miles each day was well-worth our 6-hour r/trip drive!

Suffolk Seaboard Coastline Trail

Geocaching on the Seabord Coastline Trail

March, 2019 by grandpagene

Straight line, no hills, one grade crossing - great for young families. What makes it better is there is a fairly easy geocache every tenth of a mile along the entire current trail. Almost all of them are bison tubes with a different one at the eastern trail head. Come have fun.

Virginia Capital Trail

Awesome Trail

December, 2018 by jpleftyjp

It’s an awesome trail and very easy to ride. 54 miles will various places to stop and rest along the way. I ridden the trail twice starting in Richmond, finishing at the Jamestown. And then took the Capital Trail Shuttle back to Richmond.

Virginia Capital Trail

Two times the charm

November, 2018 by carolalexander

November 2017 we paddled this trail west of Chickahominy campground. We thoroughly enjoyed pedaling this trail and the geocaching along the way. You can hear the traffic along most of this trail, but the condition of it is excellent. Enjoyed multiple trips to Cul's Courthouse Grille. This November we finished the trail east to Jamestown. Again a lot of the trail paralleled the highway, but the geocaching was fun.

Virginia Beach Boardwalk

This is a quick and easy ride with the beautiful sights and sounds of the beach on one side and hotels and shops on the other. Be vigilant though, there are several heavily used pedestrian crossing areas as well as novices on rented tourist bikes.

Great trail! Nicely kept!

Virginia Beach Boardwalk

Save for off-season biking

July, 2018 by sybilmays

A delightful ride paralleling the Oceanfront boardwalk, with views of the ocean and surf the whole way - but save this for the “off” season between Labor Day and Memorial Day or you’ll spend the whole time ducking tourists! For a longer tour, you can continue from the northern end of the boardwalk path to the little-used Shore Drive access road and pedal your way to 64th St and access First Landing State Park trails or continue on the southern end down a short stretch of Shore Drive (can use sidewalk and/or bike lane) to catch the nice multi-use path down to the Virginia Aquarium and all of its paths.

Dismal Swamp Canal Trail (VA)

super gentle ride far from cars

July, 2018 by sybilmays

Our favorite local paved trail. No cars at all - walkers and cyclists own the road (used to be the main north/south highway!) Deep woods and fields bordering the inland waterway. Always amazing to look over your shoulder to see a sailboat coming along beside you! Straight down and back, 16 miles or so round trip. City has added nice restroom facilities at entrance and midpoint. Much appreciated as there is nothing nearby.

Dismal Swamp Canal Trail (VA)

beautiful scenery, fresh air, endless pavement

June, 2018 by fureous

This is the perfect trail for cyclists. Most of it is shaded except the last 2 miles. If you stop in the middle of the trail to rest, you’ll notice its ridiculously quiet. No noise pollution whatsoever. This trail is so beautiful, wide and peaceful I have never experienced anything like it before. I rode down and back twice and racked up 34 miles on my bike! Also saw some black bears crossing the road. Will definitely be going again.

Elizabeth River Trail (Atlantic City Spur)

Great for urban exploring

February, 2018 by scachmccall

As a resident in a neighborhood along the Elizabeth River Trail, I find it extremely convenient for commuting to downtown and for pleasure riding on the weekends. The complete 10 mile trail is great if you have some time and want to explore a lot of different types of neighborhoods but if you just want to get out for a quick ride or jog it's easy to do too. There are some areas that need improvement and signage will be overhauled in the next year so I'm very hopeful it will be a real draw in the future. Overall it's a really fun and unique trail that showcases a slice of life in Norfolk - easy access to the river, historic areas, urban places, universities and a working port.
