3,000 Miles from Maine to Florida

The East Coast Greenway is a developing trail system, linking many of the major cities of the Eastern Seaboard between Canada and Key West.
Over 30 percent of the route is already on traffic-free greenways, creating safe, accessible routes for people of all ages and abilities.
The ECG fosters healthy lifestyles, empowers sustainable transportation, and promotes tourism.

Featured Trail
Virginia Capital Trail

The Virginia Capital Trail, Richmond to Jamestown, VA

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 built the Capital Trail which celebrated its Grand Opening with an Official Opening Day Ribbon Cutting and Celebration on October 3, 2015.
