This lovely, level path begins downtown on Jefferson Street, just past the eastern end of the Blackwater Creek Bikeway and the Point of Honor Trail, and moves eastward along the waterfront (passing Amazement Square and Riverfront Park), and crosses onto Percival's Island before continuing into Amherst County. Recreational opportunities along this section of the James River Heritage Trail are diverse and include walking, biking, jogging, fishing, and expansive riverfront views." (visit link
