VA Capital Trail Groundbreaking of Sherwood Forest Phase

Approximately fifty people attended the groundbreaking ceremony for the latest section of the Virginia Capital Trail.  Held at Charles City Courthouse, the event marks the start of construction of the 12.5 mile, Sherwood Forest segment.  This section of the trail will connect the existing Charles City Courthouse segment to the Chickahominy section, completing 28 contiguous miles of the planned 52 mile route.

The trail will pass Sherwood Forest, home of America’s 10th president, John Tyler.

Construction  is scheduled to be completed in October, 2013.

The Virginia Capital Trail is a pedestrian and bicycle trail that will connect the Commonwealth’s past and present capitals of Jamestown, Williamsburg and Richmond along the Scenic Route 5 corridor. The Trail will traverse 50+ miles, four jurisdictions and 400 years rich in history along one of the first inland routes in North America.  The Virginia Capital Trail is still under construction, with an estimated completion date of 2014
