A nice loop trail from the campground at Newport News Park passing through beautiful mature forrest. This is an easy bike trail, shared by hikers.

As far as a flat natural surface for biking goes, this bikeway is pretty nice. Start at the parking lot near the ranger station (at the camping entrance, not the main Newport News Park entrance). You’ll start on the paved road past the campsites then left onto the natural bikeway road. There are a few opportunities to exit the trail for other trails at Newport News Park (not for bikes) or to head into Yorktown/Colonial National Historical Park roads (use the Washington Headquarters path). The bikeway alone is about 5 miles, wide paths, lightly trafficked.

The bike path is flat so it was great for my knees, which don't run well on roots and steps and such. Really well kept, the Rangers around make it feel safe. Tons of wildlife though, saw a snake and a bunch of critters as well as about a million horse flies, so be careful!

We've just moved to the area, and have fallen in love w/Newport News Park. The bikeway is an easy ride for beginners and a good quick workout for more seasoned riders. The bikeway is nice and wide, mostly flat, but traverses through some very nice wooded scenery. Keep your eyes open for wildlife, you might be surprised by what you see. Enjoy your ride!!!
