Floodwall/Slave Trail Professional Review and Guide
"Enjoy downtown panoramas and shoals of the James River as you trace an elevated floodwall. Next join the Slave Trail through woods along the river. End at historic Manchester Docks before retracing your steps. Bring your camera—the views of Richmond and the river are unparalleled from the floodwall.This hike offers stellar vistas as well as glimpses into Richmond’s past. Though the floodwall wasn’t built with recreation in mind, it has become an integral link in the James River Park trail system. The top of the floodwall acts as an elevated pathway from which you can view the lowermost rapids of Richmond and downtown beyond as well as panoramas of the city’s south side. Beyond the floodwall the hike joins a wooded corridor bordering the James River."
