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.
