Almost 400 years of history, plus river lore, flora, fauna and more greet you in this four-hour circuit hike along both the north and south sides of Richmond’s waterfront! Hiking the Floodwall, you’ll discuss industrial development along the once more-prosperous city of Manchester. After crossing Mayo’s Bridge, you can examine the Canal Walk and continue along the riverside discussing Richmond’s rail history and more en route to Brown’s Island. From there you can take the footbridge to Belle Isle for a brief look at this island’s impact on river lore before finishing up by exploring the new trail connector. This route involves some rock scrambling and a short walk along the Manchester Wall ledge. Meet in the parking lot on Semmes Avenue just east of the south end of Manchester Bridge. Bring water and a snack. Wear good shoes, bug repellent and sunscreen.
