York River State Park Professional Review and Guide

"This ride's general location is 11 miles west of Williamsburg. Scenery includes mature hardwoods leading to a bluff overlooking the York River. This is a good family or beginner ride. The State Park has two distinctly different sets of trails open to bicycles. The Marl Ravine Trail is one option. This ride is a system of trails forming an easy, seven-mile, out-and-back ride from the Visitor Center via the Backbone, Riverview, and White-Tail Trails, with a short loop around Beaver Pond.

These wide double-track trails are just the thing for a nice spring or fall day. Backbone Trail is the longest of the trails, and the others shoot away from it like floating ribs. The Riverview and White-Tail Trails spur off the end of the 1.3 mile Backbone and offer two ways to get to a nice bluff in the woods overlooking the York River."
