James River State Park Professional Review and Guide

"This ride's general location is on the eastern bank of the James River approximately 25 miles northeast of Lynchburg and southeast of Charlottesville. Scenery includes dense woods and open fields; the Tye River Overlook offers a great view of the James and Tye Rivers. This is a good family ride.

The only sounds are the breezes whispering through the mixed oak hardwood forest and the far-off wail of a freight train. Caball Trail is suitable for novice bikers, although parts of it may be a bit difficult for youngsters whose climbing and bike handling skills could be overstressed on some rough sections of trail. It's gravel in some sections and grassy double-track in others, but this five-mile loop is only the first of a system of multi-use trails that will eventually be 20 to 25 miles long."

Trail is a mix of single track, double track, paved. Steep and rocky in places offering a good challenge, nice single tracks through the forrest, some gravel roads, but a very nice over look of the confluence of the Tye and James river makes it all worth it. The riverside trail was flat, overgrown and buggy.
