Safe, easy trails. You can go off trail to river if you want. Great for biking, walking, jogging. Cool things to see along the way. Love the “locks” display. Family and pet friendly.

Nice well maintained trails, do not recommend going after dark. Pet friendly. A mix of sun and shade, places to sit in certain areas. Some places along the trail have places you can walk down to the river. Great place to have picnic as well.

This is a beautiful, paved walking, bicycle trail that crosses over the James River on an old railroad bridge and leads you onto an island in the middle of the river. Trees abound so there is plenty of shade. Very peaceful and enjoyable. A perfect...More

I love to go jogging here with my daughter. The path is safe and open and great for biking as well. If you want a nice place for just a casual walk I highly recommend the scenery on the trail

Love this place wish we had more trails throughout Va. I enjoy it as much as my dogs do they could walk forever and so many people to visit with.

RiverWalk starts along Riverfront Park through historic downtown Lynchburg. This section of downtown has a variety of places to grab bite to eat or a drink -- including many craft beers from local breweries. You then cross over to Percival's Island, a beautiful natural area...More
