NOTE: The last .75 miles beyond route 1013 are currently closed. Use the James River Heritage Trail Access market point on google maps to find the trailhead, not the GPS points from AllTrails. The gps points will wind you all the way through a semi private construction road that dead ends at the river, in the closed portion of the trail

A really pleasant walk, and would be perfect for jogging if I were a jogger.

This is part of the James River Heritage Trail System, an extensive connection of greenways around Lynchburg. I parked at Hollins Mill Park and walked the Point of Honor Trail to the Riverwalk Trail, which took me through downtown Lynchburg along the river for several blocks and eventually across an old converted railroad bridge to Percival's Island Natural Area. It was a very enjoyable 4.4 mile out and back trip.
