This hike wanders a plethora of paths amid a 2,200-acre piece of land nestled against the Appomattox River in Amelia County. The trail system is composed of double-track trails that border forest and field. The Appomattox River is a major tributary of the James River. Amelia Wildlife Management Area, the setting for this hike, borders the Appomattox River for approximately 3 miles. The Appomattox originates in Appomattox County and flows east for 130 miles before meeting the James near Hopewell. Interestingly, the English originally named the river Bristol, but locals ended up using the Indian name after a tribe of natives settled in the eastern part of the watershed.
