This ride's general location is just south of downtown Richmond in the James River beneath the Lee Bridge. Scenery includes views of the Richmond skyline and the James River falls. This loop around the island in the James River offers a pleasant leg-stretcher with a unique perspective of Richmond's downtown skyline as well as a close look at the often treacherous class four Hollywood Rapids. The perimeter trail is suitable for beginning riders and families, although caution should be used near the water's edge. Recently, this section of Richmond riverfront has seen a good bit of development, including the Valentine Riverside Museum.
