DescriptionLocated off 564 and at the end of Hampton Blvd in Norfolk, VA, Naval Station Norfolk is the largest American Navy base. There are many options for running or biking whether you start on or off the base. Because of the many entrances to the base you could use it to get from one side of the city to the other and continue your activity of base. Outside of peak commuting hours there is usually very little traffic and the highest speed limit is 25 MPH, so it is a somewhat controlled environment. A favorite route is pierside along Decatur Avenue around onto Massey Hughes Dr. This road will take you across the the 'air side' of the base and offers room for plenty of mileage. Entering the base requires a military or DOD ID, or an escort with that type of ID.
