James River Park Main Section Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"Bisected lengthwise by a railroad track, the Main Section of James River Park retains a distinctly urban character. In addition to providing up-close views of boulders and islands along the banks of the James, this route passes under the Boulevard Bridge at its western terminus and crosses two lofty walkways that double as observation decks, offering views of the river and the city skyline.

The recently opened North Bank Trail across the river allows for an additional out-and-back extension via the Boulevard Bridge or even an elongated loop by continuing east below Hollywood Cemetery to recross the river at Belle Isle (see Hike 1)."
