Wright Brothers Multi-Use Path

pleasant and accessible

May, 2024 by susan.wisely

An ideal picturesque walk for those needing a smooth surface and benches. Docks and water on one side and beautiful large houses with manicured lawns on the other.

Lynnhaven Parkway Trail

this is just a sidewalk

There’s no trail, the crosswalk infrastructure is minimal and the buttons to cross don’t work

General Booth Boulevard Trail

Most stressful ride ever!

August, 2023 by reburgess1234

The sidewalks were in disrepair, the trees were hanging too low, the traffic was unbelievable and heavy. Not one cross walk signal worked. We felt in danger most of the ride! This was a one and done for us! Prefer the Beach Boardwalk area a million percent over this madness!

Birdneck Road Trail

This is a nice wide trail, many shady lengths. Plus it connects to General Booth and boardwalk if you want a longer ride. Yes you have to cross the Atlantic and Pacific to get to boardwalk but that did not dampen our enjoyment.

General Booth Boulevard Trail

disappointed with the General Booth

July, 2023 by browncow55

we brought our tandem to VA Beach as we do for all of our beach house family vacations. we have been disappointed in VA Beach-area cycling in general and this trail in particular. there was only a mile or so of recognizable "trail." the description says it runs parallel to the road and that is apparently because it's a sidewalk; and a narrow sidewalk at that. there was a good bridge connection to the boardwalk trail which was THE highlight.

A way to ride and not be on the the road

General Booth Boulevard Trail

general booth trail. Virginia Beach

Connects to dam neck trail. You can combine the trails and the ocean from and ride pretty safely for 15 mile.

Dam Neck Road Trail

This trail has some bumps on it but let’s you ride away from traffic for 7 miles. The. It connects to another trail to take you to the oceanfront. I ride it all the time.

Dismal Swamp Canal Trail (VA)

dismal swamp trail

August, 2022 by aldo_desalvo

Old route 17 and no interceptions. Very good place to ride with no interference of cars. Not a easy ride to get there if you want to bike to it

Kempsville Road Trail

not a trail

August, 2022 by aldo_desalvo

Just a roadie with some Bike path at the end

Dismal Swamp Canal Trail (VA)

Very smooth for skating

July, 2022 by bill.herron

Great asphalt path for inline skating. Other than twigs and pine tree needles it is very clean with no rocks. This would be a great place for a long skating ride. I went 10 miles, because I couldn’t stop to turn around. It was too fun!

Virginia Beach Boardwalk

Nice 3 mile ride, has a bike lane next to the oceanfront. Early morning rides are the best as it might get crowded later on in the day
