Nice Walking Path just be careful On hot days for (SNAKES) if you have Kids make sure they stay on the pavement & watch where you walk. Copperheads andKing Snakes
The only reason to not give it 5 stars is that it is very busy but it is scenic with lots of restaurants nearby. Smooth, well kept surface.
Parts of the trail are rough with stones and tree roots. Some sections are okay but the trail is better for hiking than biking.
Easy, enjoyable ride.
This is a nice little trail, but certainly not like a normal rail trail. The first 1/2 is nice gravel like fire road, but it then changes to narrow single track with more than its share of roots. While it’s probably a beginner level mountain bike trail, this isn’t a trail for someone on a hybrid bike or a casual cyclist. You won’t like the constant bump of the roots and certainly not the two good size muddy holes that would surely be tough for hybrid size tires.
Started out from Richmond. Made it to Charles city. 37.5 this was for Memorial day weekend. Of 2021. Heading back for Labor day weekend. For round 2 .. going the distance. 52
Just a note - as depicted - the mileage from the start near Shore Drive to the end near General Booth Blvd is actually 22 Miles - not 11.5 as in the trail description.
I cycle on this trail 2-3 times a week and the path itself is great; some of the other people who use it aren’t very courteous—they don’t share the path even though it’s a multi-use path—so if you’re cycling be mindful that you may have to go in the grass. My only complaint is the lights don’t come on in the darkest part of the path after dark. As to the complaint about road noise, well, it’s beside the road…Where there’s road noise. ¿¿¿¿¿
Outstanding trail. My wife dropped me off in Richmond and meant me in Jamestown. Rode it on June 12th 2021. It wasn't crowded at all and the only thing I would say is the trail isn't wide enough.
This is a real trail, the end near the beach is the best part, but if your looking for a trail to ride bikes on this one is it. I walked the whole thing to the end and back to the beginning. I would recommend a bike!
Easy 22 miler from the local park to the end and back. The trail is well paved and flat as a pancake with 33 deer if climbing over the 22 miles. Plenty of farms working and good views of the canal and water lily flowers. There were some historical signs providing information on the area and canal. This is a good trail to roll along and get some exercise. It ends abruptly with a little turnaround. Sure wish it was connected to the NC trail fir more miles.
I live about 4 miles from the trail so my wife and I decided to try it out. We ran the whole trail which is about a 7 mile round trip give or take where you start from. It was mostly nice and shady with a light breeze. Areas where there were no trees allowed the sun to hit you but today was only 72 degrees. I highly recommend this trail!!
