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

Southern Tip Bike & Hike Trail


October, 2020 by loriperron5960

We bike this last week and found that even though it is next to the main highway the trees make it feel woodsy. We loved the bike fixing stations on each end of the trail. The 10 miles round trip was well worth

Virginia Capital Trail

Great ride. Rode East and had a great time. I recommend grabbing a small trail map early so you know where bathrooms and tool kits are located.

Nice ride

My buddy and I did the round trip this past Sunday, Aug 30. Beautiful day for a long ride.

Trillium Trail (Sandy Bottom Nature Park)

Nice walk for being in a city

August, 2020 by kandi.sorcic

Nice walk considering it’s in a city. Parts of this trail are next to a highway or subdivision, which is a little disappointing because it takes away from the serenity. But overall it’s a nice escape without having to travel too far.

Virginia Capital Trail

Great bike trail!

August, 2020 by jhadland2

We started the trail in Jamestown. The trail is well maintained, mostly flat and not too crowded. We rode out to the Sherwood Forest Plantation and turned around. 34 miles round trip. The challenge of the day was the Chickahominy River Bridge. Steep but fun and rewarding view when you get to the top. 100% recommend.

Southern Tip Bike & Hike Trail

fun, easy first trail

July, 2020 by laurascag

This was my first bike ride on a trail with my husband and small dog (flipped into a basket) and it was perfect. All paved, almost completely flat. It’s actually 10 miles out and back if you do the whole trail. It was a hot day, but a lot of the trail was shaded.

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.

Powhatan Creek Trail


June, 2020 by myoungfighter

Hi. So, I tried this trail for the first time.. starting from the elementary school.. I loved it!! It was perfect.. the scenery is amazing.. and to get to see some history along the way, it was a great feeling.. There are some hills in the beginning, very doable.. and some turns.. and 2 bridges, that are lovely.. I will say, I did not notice any mile markers, so it was confusing to tell when I approached Greensprings, as I was hoping it would be obvious, so I could turn around and head back.. but I couldn’t tell.. so I just turned around when the watch said 2.4 miles..

Southern Tip Bike & Hike Trail

Keep extending northward!

June, 2020 by trailsforall

I biked the trail round trip end to end from southern trailhead (milepost 0.0) to Phase II northern terminus at Capeville Road (milepost 4.9) on a humid Saturday morning in June 2020. Although currently just shy of 5 miles one way - there is HUGE potential for Virginia's Eastern Shore if Phase III and Phase IV are built connecting to Cape Charles waterfront. Even more ambitious, VDOT is studying an Eastern Shore Rail to Trail project, extending an additional 49 miles from Cape Charles to Hallwood, Virginia.

As of June 2020, the 4.9 mile long trail provides a smooth and flat trip along a 10 foot wide asphalt surface. Wildflowers, shrubs, trees, agricultural fields and a few remnant Cape Charles Railroad industrial buildings line the route. the southern 2.5 miles (Phase I, opened in 2011) provides benches, repair stations, interpretive signs, parking and restrooms. The northern half (Phase II) has fewer amenities, but continues the smooth surface.

Being a regular driver along the adjacent US 13 (four lane 55 mph highway) I was surprised to find that the trail is about 50% in shade, with trees along both sides of the route and a thin canopy overhead. The other 1/2 of the trail is more open to the east, yet trees and shrubs are nearly continuous on the western side of the trail. This thin stand of pine and hardwood trees provides a visual buffer from the highway, but the noise of passing 18-wheel trucks is always present. If you're seeking an escape deep into natural solitude, this may not be the trail for you. However, the condition of the trail is superb. Additionally, crossing US13 near the southern terminus (be careful!) provides connections to Kiptopeke State Park and more (unpaved) trails. Overall, I remain hopeful that with expansion northward, the trail reaches greater potential. Currently, it still provides a great, albeit short experience. Come on, Eastern Shore, "build it, and they will come"!
