Always take the side trail. One goes by a church from 1750. Great paved trail for cycling.

We've biked this trail a number of times. Lots of friendly people. The trail from Jamestown Trailhead to Charles City is the best section. Slightly over 20 miles to Charles City. Stop at Cul's Diner. Tell him John and Julie sent you. Great food.

I love this trail! I completed the entire 52 mile trail in both directions on this date. I rode my bicycle in sections over a period of time with some of the sections numerous times. I also found it convenient, at each end of the trail, navigating in Richmond and Jamestown on a bicycle, as both areas are becoming more bike friendly. If you have a love for history, historic markers, interpretive signs, and the outdoors, you may also love this trail. Go to www.virginiacapitaltrail.org for more information and detailed map.

It was very early in the morning. Not sure I was even fully awake. We went down to the river and enjoyed it.

Not the best section of the Capital trail, but if it is a bucket list item for you then do it. We did it early this morning and were the only riders.

I did this three years ago and forgot to review in. It was a nice ride.

Love this ride. Take the side trips down to the river landings. Spot some eagles and be sure to eat at Cul's Courthouse Grill in Charles City CH

Ride from James City park on the Chickahominy River to Jamestown is 12 miles and a great ride

Very easy, flat, and well-maintained trail. A great family trail with interpretive trail signs throughout. As mentioned in other reviews, this trail connects with an asphalt bike trail, so be mindful as you walk. Be on the lookout for the deer herd that moves throughout this trail's area, as it contains several piebald (mostly white) deer. The white deer make the herd easy to spot throughout most of the year.

My family has completed this trail numerous times in all seasons, with a full hike taking just about one hour to one and a half hour estimate of this site.

This trail is also a great morning run, but the mosquitos, especially on the wooden bridges, can be an issue in the summer months.
