One of the East Coast Greenway’s complementary routes includes the Virginia Capital Trail, a dedicated, paved pedestrian and bicycle trail connecting the Commonwealth’s past and present capitals of Jamestown and Richmond along the Scenic Route 5 Corridor. Traversing approximately 52 miles, four jurisdictions, and more than 400 years of history along one of the first inland routes in North America, it is also the venue for an annual CAP2CAP Ride between the two capitals. The Virginia Department of Transportation is building the Capital Trail which will celebrate its Grand Opening with an Official Opening Day Ribbon Cutting and Celebration on October 3, 2015.
