Dismal Swamp Canal Trail (VA)

OUTSTANDING TANDEM BIKE TRAIL

March, 2021 by utpaduke

My wife and I rode this trail on March 9-10-11. It was Straight as an arrow and Flat as a pancake! My wife and I always explore new rail-trails as we travel... Normally we do 6 miles out and back. But this time, my wife said she was willing to go to the end of the trail! We parked @ the main parking lot right off of Hwy 17. Each day we did a round-trip of a bit over 17miles! Two beautiful bathrooms about 3.5miles apart. Two awesome JD 6600 Combines and some other old farm vehicles hidden in the woods! This is a beautiful and serene riding location at any time of the day! We stayed @ the HIExpress-Chesapeake; about 8 miles away. The only bear we saw was Ches A. Peake, the wooden mascot @ the trail entrance!

General Booth Boulevard Trail

cool bridge!

February, 2021 by tom.joy

Not a clear connection from Boardwalk Trail but with Trail Link maps, you’ll find it. Very cool to go over the big bridge. Then follows the busy highway thru residential and business areas including the Aquarium! Partially shaded. Sometimes bumpy from roots or uneven sidewalks.

Outstanding riding trails.

The trails are very well maintained. Despite all the previous rain, I had an awesome 23 mile ride and throughly enjoyed the day. The park Staff are very knowledgeable and friendly.

Elizabeth River Trail (Atlantic City Spur)

Disappointing

November, 2020 by 4myrott

This is not an easy ride on a bike. Parked at Harbor Park the route runs along the Waterside waterfront which is nice but you have to dodge a lot of walkers, sight seeing people. Then it twists and turns and signage could be better. Once you get out of the Waterside area it’s sidewalks some rather narrow. Again dodging lots of walkers. I disliked this so much that about 3.5 miles in I turned around and left. It’s not a dedicated bike path, the city just put up some signs along sidewalks. This was no fun.

Dismal Swamp Canal Trail (VA)

relaxing and perfect for all ages

October, 2020 by methh001

Very nice atmosphere with plenty of rest areas. Be sure to be the sun down to avoid wildlife

Wright Brothers Multi-Use Path

Great easy flat paved trail!

July, 2020 by dustin.horning1

This trail goes down along Kitty Hawk Bay and has tons of little public and private docks along the way. Bike ride or going on a leisurely walk with the fam fam this trail has lot to look at and nice people along the way. We stayed at a rental in an attached neighborhood and it was a perfect bike ride to get some exercise on vacation. Highly recommend it! I went down and back and I got 7.4 miles in, so I suspect this is a lot longer than 1.5 miles. Just FYI!

Suffolk Seaboard Coastline Trail

Time well spent

July, 2020 by jessica.stewart876

I am from Hampton roads but moved to Maryland 5 years ago . I came for the first time To this trail this year while on a trip visiting my mom. This trail is a gem I wish I had known about sooner. I also was blown away by the culture of this trail. So many people greet you while Passing by. It’s very humbling and refreshing. It’s a big difference from the many trails I frequent in the dmv. The “scenery was serene” and although flat surface was not the most challenging... a round trip jog/walk provides respective miles (7 miles)

Suffolk Seaboard Coastline Trail

easy peasy lemon squeezy

June, 2020 by mslucylou

This paved trail is awesome. Great for beginner bikes, skateboards, scooters, or whatever your mode of discovery is! There are Pokestops every 1/4 mile, benches for resting and portable bathrooms with water at the beginning and the end. Parking is in a lot with accessible parking and street lights. The trail is well used without being overcrowded, so you feel safe but still feel the openness of being outdoors. Great for everybody!!

Birdneck Road Trail

I walked this with my kids. It's a nice trail, most of it is right up against the woods and you can hear the crickets. There were other walkers, joggers, and bikers. But I found the traffic noise kind of a nuisance.

Elizabeth River Trail (Atlantic City Spur)

See the Diversity of Norfolk

June, 2020 by susanfleenor

Read all the other reviews but know that the signage has been greatly improved. You can park at either end, Hermitage to the north or Harbor Park to the south. Parts of the trail are on the street but I never felt unsafe. Different routes are available so be sure to check the map. Plenty of places to stop and eat or drink along the way, Smartmouth, Orapax, Waterside and lots of choices across the street from ODU. Views of downtown, waterfront, parks, college campus. So diverse! How many mermaids can you find along the way?

Dismal Swamp Canal Trail (NC)

Longer then noted

May, 2020 by candskennedy

If you start your ride at "Chessie" (address is 1200 Dismal Swamp Canal) and continue to the end it's 8.3 miles each way for a total of 16.6 miles. Make sure to apply bug spray. Family and cyclist friendly!
