The Chickahominy Riverfront Phase of the Virginia Capital Trail is 5 miles in length and closely follows Highway 5 on a paved path for its entire duration. On its eastern end, this section begins where Greensprings Road meets Highway 5 and continues until the Judith Stewart Dresser Bridge, which crosses the Chickahominy River. The Greensprings Plantation National Historical Site can be reached from the East end of this phase by heading northeast on highway 5 and taking the first left. The site is about 3 tenths of a mile down this road on the left. Back on the trail and heading west, you will find a number of wooden boardwalks that have been constructed to cross the sometimes uneven landscape. The trail crosses a few driveways along the way. Be sure to obey stop signs and be aware of traffic.
