I was a expecting to walk-run a marathon on a trail starting from Yorktown park. Instead it was all road. That was fine but a little dangerous. 99% of drivers went out of their way to move a little extra toward the center of the road when approaching. It would be nice if there was a nice distinguishable line a foot or two for trekkers because the views the river, the woods and rolling hills gives you everything you want. Plus exactly 13.1 miles from Yorktown in the turnaround you find yourself right in the midst of Colonial Williamsburg, costumed employees in tricornered hats, reconstructed tavern and courthouse, horse poop smell, etc.

I run against traffic, to be able to spot the cars drifting. Not too many cars, average about 2-3 everytime I run it, normally morning time. Gates open at 0830.

This is another one that we did over three years ago and I forgot to enter it. This is a very pleasant ride.

Pleasant except for the cars sharing the road.

Very busy but nice.

A couple years ago. Nice walk except that you share it with cars.

Really awesome piece of American History is the battlefield where British General Cornwallis surrendered to General George Washington and the combined American and French forces.

This is a great 5 mile loop. Start at the visitor center and pass the 3 mile loop. Great views of the water, very nice!

Some of it was interesting but I really do not like riding a bike in traffic. Better yet, lets stick to wooded trails. Lakes, rivers and views are the best!
