Join Us for the Grand Opening of the Virginia Capital Trail


The Virginia Capital Trail is a dedicated, paved pedestrian and bicycle trail that will connect the Commonwealth’s past and present capitals of Jamestown and Richmond along the Scenic Route 5 corridor.

Once complete, the Trail will traverse approximately 52 miles, four jurisdictions, and more than 400 years of history along one of the first inland routes in North America. The Virginia Department of Transportation is in progress building the Capital Trail, and there are currently 29 miles completed: .5 in downtown Richmond, 20.5 in Charles City County, and 8 in James City County. The latest section to be completed is the 13-mile Sherwood Forest Phase.
