5 Places to run (or hike) close to The Commonwealth at York apartments:

City Center

The social runner will enjoy meeting up with a Wednesday running group, or people watching at this busy city center.  The circle around the fountain is .35 miles, but the Color Me Rad 5K was in this area, so you can find a fun 3 mile run with no problems.

Ft. Monroe

1.8 miles along the seawall and tons of other fields and places to explore- Fort Monroe is a bit of a drive, but worth every minute to enjoy beach views and a peaceful environment.

Kiln Creek Fitness Trail

The closet place to run to our community, this is a beautiful paved path that circles around the golf course.  It’s about 3 miles, so practice for that 5K!

Matteson Trail

Just a few minutes away is another golf course run.  A three mile trail, freshly paved in 2012.  Watch out for golf balls!

Newport News Park

Not only for jogging, but boating, biking and more, Newport News Park is one of the largest on the east coast.  Enjoy the 5.3 mile multi use trail–just expect bikes and others to share the trail.
