The Winchester Green Circle trail is not quite finished to its final design, but it can be walked or biked in its current state. The best place to start is near Wilkins Lake a.k.a. "the Duck Pond" at Shenandoah University or the Abrams Delight - Winchester Visitors Center. There is plenty of parking in this area, but you can start the trail anywhere along the loop that is convenient.

There’s a good view of nature there’s Geese. It’s five miles but it’s easy and beautiful. There’s also maps and you can learn about the animals seen on the Green Circle Trail.

The Winchester Green Loop hasn't been completed and ends at mile 4.63 and is actually going to be 6.31 miles in length. The trail is well-marked and follows city sidewalks much of the way. It passes many points of interest, such as Oldtown Winchester, Abram's Delight, and the Abrams Creek Wetlands.

We were able to complete the unfinished loop by using the sidewalks on Jubal Early on the way back to our parking point near Shenandoah University.

Upon the trail's completion, this will be a fun, quick, and easy urban hike.
