Newport News Park Bikeway

Older couple enjoying bike ride

November, 2022 by tg7w84nj49

we are older and just started riding, love this trail, beautiful scenery and most roots are marked with blue paint so you can see them easily, there are not that many roots. It was such a nice day, really enjoyed it. When we get better, we plan on taking this trail to Yorktown.

Don’t Recommend…

Very stressful trail! Terrible signage, MANY street crossings, some closures, rough in many parts.

Norfolk Avenue Trail

short trail.

August, 2022 by aldo_desalvo

Connects bird neck road path to the oceanfront. This is an old Norfolk slither rail trail. Currently there is about 7 miles that remains unused. There is a new light rail at the end

Challenging trail. Highly recommended a mountain bike. I have made it through with a gravel bike. Lots of sites. You can ride from Shore drive to the ocean in connecting roads and trails

dismal swamp trail

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!

Newport News Park Bikeway

Great for a Tandem Bike ride¿

July, 2022 by utpaduke

Mel and I rode this beautiful trail on our tandem bike on Mon-Tues. We had planned to ride 2 loops for 10.6M each day. After completing the 1st loop on Monday, we decided to ride the trail in reverse from exit to begin. We found riding in that direction more conducive to the slight ups/downs! Even though it has been hot average 85F, the heat was manageable - 99% shaded¿ Luv it!

Powhatan Creek Trail

Nice shaded trail starting from the elementary school with bridges going over marshes, and creeks. Not lots of people, but set between some subdivisions. There were a few benches to sit on before getting to the meadow.

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
