Did this about three months ago. We hiked Hog Island and went to a great little Italian restaurant in Surry.
From Hampton cross the James River Bridge and keep going following 258 and then 10 to Surry. Come back using the ferry to Jamestown and then 199 and I-64. For an out and back take 258 and 11 both ways. There are parks and a wildlife preserve along the way. It is a bright, sunshiny day.
