EXPLORE NORFOLK’S ICONIC WATERFRONT ALONG THE 10.5 MILE URBAN TRAIL

Since 2003, the Elizabeth River Trail has connected segments of Norfolk’s working waterfront with scenic routes past historic landmarks, local gems, and beautiful parks highlighting the diversity of Norfolk and providing a riverfront sanctuary amongst the urban energy of our City. The trail connects 28 unique neighborhoods and will expand East continuing along the Elizabeth River allowing even more neighborhoods to be within a five minute walk of the Trail. Our goal is to create the most connected, accessible and resilient riverfront trail in the country. Meet the foundation, see our vision, and learn how you can help.
