Fluvanna Heritage Trail Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"A descent from the eastern trailhead to a pebbled shoal on the Rivanna River affords hikers an up-close encounter with the waterway they will only glimpse through the trees for most of this out-and-back. After running along hilly bluffs between recovering forest and a riparian floodplain, the route ventures to a second overlook at Burke Creek then uphill to the former Haden farmstead.

Fluvanna’s history is inseparable from that of the Rivanna River, which bisects the county and meets the James on its eastern border. Besides providing water to farms, the river powered mills and carried crops to market. Fluvanna Heritage Trail traces the river’s western shore, opposite the hamlet of Palmyra, itself a tribute to the area’s rich past."
