This is a gorgeous bike and hiking trail that circles Jamestown Island. Goes over marshes, across wooden bridges, and right down to the James River.

Wonderful, historic ride thru the Yorktown battlefield in October. Did not like sharing the road with cars, as we parked at the Visitors Center. This was part road biking, part trail biking. Takes awhile if you stop and read the historic markers.

Very pretty woods. Single lane road with no bike lane. Had to pull off the side of the road several times to let vehicles pass . If you go, go early so there is less traffic.

lovely drive

Access closes at 430 pm

I wish there was a pedestrian trail alongside the road. We saw many birds, including eagles soaring above us.

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.

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!
