Originally built by the Civilian Conservation Corps in the 1930s, First Landing State Park is located by the Chesapeake Bay. The park, which is Virginias most visited state park, is nestled in Virginia Beach. First Landing offers boating, swimming, nature and history programs, hiking, biking, picnicking, a boat launch, cabins and 20 miles of trails on 2,888 acres. It also has campsites with water and electric hook-ups and nearby access to restrooms and showers. The park's name was changed in 1997 from Seashore State Park to First Landing State Park to reflect its heritage as the first place where members of the Virginia Company landed. They went on to settle Jamestown.

Mountain biking is a stretch to describe this trail. It does have some very pleasant views, especially once you get to "the narrows" section.

it's rare to run through so many different eco-systems in one trail / park - but this is it. Full of life and bio-diversity not to mention a chance to jump in the water and cool off on a hot day...

Park outside the entrance on 62nd Street to avoid a park fee $

Fun trail, a Virginia Beach classic. Plenty of bikes on the Cape Henry trail so be sure to stay to the right!

Great trail! Easy to handle for small children.
