Williamsburg Biking Trails

While we are delighted to keep bicycles here at Warner Hall for you to use to explore our Virginia plantation and the country roads that surround it, we know that when you come here you may also want to get out and explore by bike some of the other beauty Tidewater, Va. has to offer. Like nearby Williamsburg.

From beautiful farmlands to coastal communities, several well maintained trails allow you to take in the sights and smells of all Williamsburg has to offer by bike. Explore the same scenic trails where English settlers arrived in 1607. Discover beautiful shorelines, wooded areas, marshlands and the very green fields discovered by our nation’s earliest settlers hundreds of years ago.

This list is brought to you by the “Williamsburg Biking Trails” brochure published by the Greater Williamsburg Chamber and Tourism Alliance.

Historic Williamsburg (5.2 miles) – Starting in Merchants Square and travel through Historic Williamsburg, the College of William and Mary and almost every major historic building in the area. There are several cafés and delis for your dining pleasure along the way!

College Landing Park (5.0 miles) – Starting in the Historic Area of Colonial Williamsburg, this trail travels along the Colonial Parkway, which is particularly beautiful with changing foliage in the spring and fall.

Historic Jamestowne Island (7.4 or 5.4 miles) – Before heading out on this trail, be sure to purchase a National park Pass at the information center for $10. This trail is one of the easiest bike tours offered in the area and is recommended for beginners and small children. Stop and check out the glass blowing demonstrations, archaeological digs and interpretive paintings.

Virginia Capital Trail (14 miles) – This trail is both a pedestrian and bicycle trail and will take you through Virginia’s past and present. Travel through Jamestown, Williamsburg and Richmond…which winds along 400 years of capital history.

Yorktown Battlefields (9.0 or 12.4 miles) – Whether an avid cyclist or history buff, this trail will satisfy. This trail leaves from Historic Yorktown and follows the Battlefield and Allied Encampment tours through winding dirt roads and historic battlefields. Stop and read historical signs along the way.

Little Creek Reservoir (9.6 miles) – This trail is both easy and pleasant. Situated around the Little Creek Reservoir, the second half of this ride boasts scenic views of the lake.

Three County Challenge (55 miles) – One of the longer trails in the area, this trail is challenging yet extremely rewarding with its gorgeous water views. With plenty of areas for resting, you will explore James City, New Kent and York Counties.

Williamsburg Winery (12 miles) – This trail begins in the Historic Area of Williamsburg and travels to the James River via the Colonial Parkway. While it boasts small hills, the trail is mostly flat but may not be suitable for small children. Be sure to stop at the Williamsburg Winery along the way!
