We only were on a short portion of the trail. We got to witness the reality of the sign that says, "This is a live track". A local freight came right up and parked a for a while. We only walked the trail as we waited for our table at The Depot.

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 place to bring children, and older adults for a walk in nature, but on blacktop.

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 with paved trails. The island was once a train yard but there are only a few signs of it's previous use. It goes into Amherst County after crossing over the James River. Make sure to look for wildlife! We see tons of rabbits and dears every time we go!
