This ride's general location is just north of the Nickel Bridge in the city of Richmond. Scenery includes dense hardwoods and numerous ravines adjacent to the James River. This is a good single-track for advanced beginners and better riders. The trails are tight but smooth single-track that rise and fall in short spurts through creeks and ravines in this area . This is one of those small parks where trails seem to run hither, thither, and yon, creating a patchwork of directional variations. For this reason, it's hard to estimate trail mileage. You can spend as much or as little time here as you wish, depending on where you turn and how ambitious you are.

Very small park but a great workout. BMX style ravine is fast but watch out - I did not have enough speed and fell and broke my arm. Good news was Powhite is located just across the street from a major hospital!
