Belle Isle

Belle Isle Professional Review and Guide

"Belle Isle, part of the James River Park System and one of Richmond's most popular city parks, is located in the heart of Virginia's state capital, just across the river from the newly renovated Richmond Riverfront. This 54-acre island in the middle of the James River attracts thousands of visitors annually.

Its high cliff walls, rushing rapids, stone ruins, and fascinating history together make this island one of the most unique mountain biking spots in the Richmond area. Trail Surface: Gravel path around the island's perimeter and rugged, hill singletrack up in the island's higher ground."
