Hour-Long Ghost Tour of Williamsburg, Virginia

122 reviews
For a not-so-typical take on Virginia history, travelers shouldn't miss the chance to uncover haunted stories of Williamsbug on this ghastly ghost tour. Join up with your guide in the evening to visit several historic sights, dating to colonial times. Along the way, expect spooky tales of ghosts and spirits, and visit places where psychics and paranormal investigators have reported actual hauntings.

We went for a picnic lunch and made use of one of the available grilling areas. There was ample parking and plenty of picnic tables. There was also a playground nearby, though we didn't have any young kids with us. There are several trails available, and the grounds are well maintained. There were some areas they were mowing while we were there, and it looked like they had been a bit neglected, but that may have been due to closings during the COVID shutdowns. Overall, it is a nice park, where you can wander through a wooded area, walk down along the water, or just enjoy a relaxing picnic.

Great way to spend the afternoon taking a walk at York River State Park . The park is next to the lovely York River and a informative museum is on the hill beside the river.Be on the look out for bald eagles.

I am not talking about the mountain bike trails. There are other reviews for those. Today we did our third bike ride and have now completed all the multi use trails. We have comfort bikes with wide tires and an easy seat. Except for the Backbone Trail, the condition of the multi use trails with the sandy soil, washboards and tree roots is such that they are best used for hiking and horse back riding. We will return only to hike and leave the bikes at home. The Taskinas Creek Trail, a hiking only trail, is our favorite trail in the park.

Another great location near Williamsburg for cycling. Parking was $5, and had clean restrooms at the back of the lot. Safe place to park, with virtually no worry of theft or vandalism. From the parking lot, directly to the trails via a central corridor type trail system, aptly named the Backbone Trail, which is great for a bail out or to mix it up a little. Trails maintained by the Eastern Virginia Mountain Bike Association. Thanks to this group for their work. Nothing too technical on these trails, but enough elevation change to get the blood pumping. No long climbs or descents, just a good even workout. Sandy terrain in a lot of places, with exposed roots that can be slick and tricky. Some overgrowth, but not much. Remote feel, without being really out there. Many trails are multi-use, including equestrian, so keep trail courtesy in mind, and mind the trail mines. Some trails are single use, hiking, mountain biking, or horse riding. The York River State Park website has two trail PDFs, one specifically for biking. It's a good idea to have them both. The park itself is a little more than 2,500 acres, with more than 20 miles of bike specific trails, not including multi use trails. A fun place to ride and get out of the more populated areas, but not having to drive an hour if staying in Williamsburg.
