Lynchburg Travel Guide


Lynchburg's fine municipal "greenway" system of trails is open to both bicyclists and hikers. The Blackwater Creek Natural Area & Bikeway has more than 12 mi of trails, most of them level and asphalt, which wind through a pleasant tree-shaded natural area within the city limits. One trail goes through a 500-foot tunnel. The Percival's Island Trail, three blocks from one edge of the natural area and in the shadow of the downtown skyline, extends for more than a mile along a narrow strip of land in the middle of the James River. Lynchburg, VA. 434/847–1640 City of Lynchburg Parks and Recreation Dept.

To rent a bike, contact Blackwater Creek Bike Rental, which is open weekdays 1 to 5 and weekends from 9 to sunset. 1611 Concord Tpke., Lynchburg, VA, 22504. 434/845–0293.
