Approximately fifty people attended the groundbreaking ceremony for the latest section of the Virginia Capital Trail. Held at Charles City Courthouse, the event marks the start of construction of the 12.5 mile, Sherwood Forest segment. This section of the trail will connect the existing Charles City Courthouse segment to the Chickahominy section, completing 28 contiguous miles of the planned 52 mile route.
The trail will pass Sherwood Forest, home of America’s 10th president, John Tyler.
Construction is scheduled to be completed in October, 2013.
