Virginia's Capital Trails

Click on a section of the trail for more information

From the Canal Walk in the heart of Richmond’s upscale Shockoe Valley to the Governor’s Mansion in Colonial Williamsburg, the Virginia Capital Trail traverses a beautiful landscape as it parallels historic Route 5. The approximately 51-mile trail travels through portions of Henrico, Charles City, and James City counties along the way as it connects the previous capitals of Jamestown (1607-1699) and Williamsburg (1699-1780) to its current capital of Richmond (1780-present).

The Trail ranges in width between eight and ten feet, and is paved throughout its entire length to accommodate all modes of non-motorized transportation. Construction of the Trail took place in phases.

Capital Trail Foundation

The Virginia Capital Trail Foundation (VCTF) is a public-private partnership whose mission is to support and promote the construction, public use and ongoing enhancement of the Virginia Capital Trail. As working partners on this unique project, the VCTF and VDOT are committed to fulfilling the vision of former governors Mark Warner and Bob McDonnell and with the continued support of Governor Terry McAuliffe to ensure the Trail becomes a cultural asset and source of regional pride for the Commonwealth.
