At 3 miles in length, the Greensprings phase is the shortest section of the Virginia Capital Trail. Starting at the southern end, this section of trail may be accessed from Jamestown Road near the Jamestown Settlement Living History Museum and Ships, and continues northwest on a paved path until reaching Highway 5. Shortly after passing route 680 on the right, heading north, the trail is flanked by large fields. Just a short distance ahead lies a junction between Greensprings and a private road. It is at this location you will find a number of historical markers that interpret a Revolutionary War battle fought on these grounds, the site of a mid-18th century church nearby, the historical significance of the road beside you and the history of ownership involving the land surrounding this area.
