Hiking

If you like to hike, you've got options in Williamsburg. Like College Landing Park, where trails run through the marshlands. A walk through the marshland is sure to yield some great views of nature. Hike eight of the 50 miles opened of the Virginia Capital Trail, which offers gorgeous views of the lands running between the Jamestown Settlement and the Chickahominy River Bridge. Or you can traverse the Colonial Parkway, a 23-mile road that boasts lush green forests, and runs through Williamsburg, Yorktown and Jamestown.
