I’ve parked at both ends and loved the ride both ways. More like 10miles from Harbor Park to Hermitage. Once you get used to where the signs are they are easy to spot. Have to think like a walker and sometimes they are on the opposite side of the road. Lots of water views, beautiful flowers and trains and boats. Definitely helps to download the map first to get an idea of where you are going.

I agree with Benjamin. It took me two times to rigue out where it was.

Definitely not well marked. Road construction adds to the confusion. Very pretty ride.

Not so obvious to follow, as it is a mix of paved trail, sidewalks, and roads. Recommend downloading the map from the city of norfolk's website beforehand. Once you figure out where to go, it is a fantastic ride!
