The trail is wonderful for bike riding or walking. It's actually possible to ride all the way to Williamsburg. There are nice places to stop along the way and enjoy wildlife, or the views. We will definitely be back to enjoy this more.
My husband and I try to ride this trail whenever we visit Williamsburg. We had two recent rides - 55 and 34 miles. It’s so scenic, well maintained, and a lot of it is shaded. We live in the flats, so the rolling hills and...More
This trail is fantastic. The surfaces are well maintained and easily accessible at both the Richmond and Jamestown ends. Very picturesque along the way and we loved the mile markers along the way. Cul's Grill in Charles City was awesome. We did the entire trail...More
This 52-mile long bike trail is just terrific! We've done several short stretches recently, on our way to doing the entire 52 miles. Lots of parking areas, conveniently spread out so that the trail is doable, piecemeal. There were some hills and, for most bikers,...More
We are so fortunate to not only have this resource in Richmond, but to have it yards from our home. We invested in some low-end bicycles to give it a try two years ago and now we can't stop enjoying it! Looks like we will...More

Was biking by 7:15 this morning and after completing 56 miles I am thrilled to report:...More
We frequently go on the capital trail. There is history all along the route and of course you have Richmond and Williamsburg on the ends. It is a great well maintained bike route that is safe and enjoyable. Small grade changes and nicely spaced restrooms...More

Hi Steve. I took I-64 takes right into Richmond from Jamestown. I took this during rush hour and encountered a surprisingly smooth flow right into town. Granted it was the week before Easter so probably traffic was a little lighter than usual.
Please remember if doing the Virginia Capital Trail to bring LOTS of water and snacks as there are only a few accommodations on the trail and they are mainly at the ends of the trail.
