Loved the end of the trail where you can walk over a bridge and follow the river. Nice location close to restaurants and a paved path for runners, bike riders or just walking along for some fresh air.

Great trail for walking or biking. They had a bike rental shop with there by the tracks which would make for a great afternoon adventure. Would use this as a stopping point on a long trip if convenient t get out of the car and send some time enjoying nature.

Who would have thought that such a beautiful place is here in Lynchburg and it is surprising that even a lot of locals don't know about it.

My wife and I will make it to the Riverwalk Trail here and there to just take a relaxing stroll. It is well maintained and offers some nice views. On nicer days it can be pretty crowded with people and bicycles, but definitely worth taking advantage of while downtown!

This is a very nice trail to walk, run or ride a bike. It has some very pretty views of the river and downtown Lynchburg. We always enjoy a nice walk here and have never been disappointed.
