Historic Jamestowne Bike Trail
Jamestown Island was formed many thousands of years ago from a series of ridges and depressions along the James River. English colonists first arrived in 1607. In the two hundred years following the arrival of the English, the island landscape evolved from the seat of government to large plantations owned by the Ambler and Travis families.
Today, the Island Drive affords views of the island, James River, the marshlands, and regenerating forest. The Island Drive Loop is open to pedestrians, bike riders and vehicle traffic. The drive will introduce you to the natural environment which the English colonists encountered. You may observe wildlife during your tour.
To explore the Island Drive follow the tour directions.
