The Virginia Capital Trail

From downtown Richmond to the 18th century

Yes, you can gear up and ride all the way to Jamestown. You can also rent a bike (even an electric one) and ride for however long you’d like on the Capital Trail. This dedicated, paved pedestrian and bike trail connects Virginia’s past and present capitals of Jamestown and Richmond along the scenic Route 5 corridor. Along the way, you’ll find historic sites, places to eat, picnic spots and lodging options. It’s family friendly, no matter what your skill level. And it’s like nowhere you’ve ever been.
