Virginia Capital Trail
The 2.8-mile Greensprings phase opened in November 2006. Greensprings begins at the Colonial Parkway near the Jamestown Settlement and continues to Jamestown High School.
This phase offers access between the school, neighborhoods, and part of James City County's greenway system. It connects the Greensprings settlement area, Mainland Farm, and the Jamestown Settlement historic area. Local history is highlighted through a series of interpretive panels located along the trail.
The trail also crosses a 40-acre wooded wetland, donated by the Williamsburg Land Conservancy. That wetland will be transferred to the Department of Game and Inland Fisheries for perpetual preservation as an urban wildlife area.
Cost: $4.1 million
