This ride's general location is in the Church Hill area of Richmond. You'll enjoy this hillside trail overlooking Richmond's downtown skyline and the James River. However, this can be a high crime area, so plan to ride with a friend. The Parks' location above the banks of the James River in the city's Church Hill section offers a 180-degree panorama of the downtown skyline as well as much of the city's former commercial trading district along the river. You would think there's only so much you can expect from a one-mile trail situated on six acres of parkland. What may surprise you is the amount of huffing and puffing you'll be doing after completing this diminutive loop. The short distance of this tight technical single-track belies its difficulty and the intense demands it places on mountain bikers. Plans call for expanding the trail.
