Bicycle Riding in Williamsburg, VA area VA Capital Trail

virginiacapitaltrailwilliamsburg The first sections of the Virginia Capital Trail have been completed near Jamestown and Williamsburg VA.. When complete, the trail will stretch 55 miles from Jamestown to Williamsburg and Richmond, connecting the three places that have been the state capital of Virginia since the arrival of the first English settlers in 1607 in Jamestown.

Ready for riding at this point are 8 miles of paved trail in the Greensprings and Chickahominy sections, as well as a 10-mile portion that uses the already-existing Colonial Parkway. Three parking areas are available:

  • vacapitaltrailcharlescitycountyParking in the grassy field adjacent to where the trail ends, across from the  Jamestown Settlement, is no longer allowed. Other area parking lots are available across the Colonial Parkway in Powatan Creek Park, or across Jamestown Road in the parking lot at the campground.
  • at Jamestown High School parking lot where the Greensprings and Chickahominy sections meet; and
  • at the Chickahominy Riverfront Park near the Chickahominy River Bridge on scenic state Route 5.

    For mountain bikers, Freedom Park, Upper County Park, York River State Park, New Quarter Park  and Wahrani Park all offer many miles of challenging mountain bike trails thanks to the efforts of the  The Eastern Virginia Mountain Bike Association (EVMA) volunteers. EVMA has been gradually increasing the mileage of off-road trails in the area.
