The Elizabeth River Trail is a 9.5 mile biking and pedestrian trail in the City of Norfolk that has transformed several former railroad rights-of-ways, connected predominantly by off-road and some on-road trails, into an urban trail. The trail provides recreational and educational opportunities as well as an alternate mode of transportation from the Norfolk Naval Base, located in the northern portion of the city, into downtown Norfolk.
