Parks, Beaches & Trails

After you've explored Williamsburg's history attractions, check out its scenic beauty on hiking trails, in parks and along the Yorktown waterfront.

Scenic rides. Historic paths. Family fun.

With trails and parks in the Williamsburg area taking you along the James and York rivers, or through the woods, you won’t want to miss out on amazing hiking and biking experiences. New Quarter Park offers mountain biking and hiking along the York River, while the Greensprings Greenway Interpretive Trail takes you back into the woods of Williamsburg.
