Description

This bit of trail connects the Belle Isle and Pump House parking lots for the James River park system.

Heading east from the Pump House parking lot, enter the trail next to kiosk. From there continue under the Boulevard bridge, and to a creek crossing. Cross the creek and continue along a chain link fence until you emerge on a dirt road. Take the dirt road to a wooden ramp.

At the top of the ramp you'll take a right to access the newly built connecting trail (that now eliminates the paved road portion of the path).

From here no more directions should be needed except for a section split for foot versus bike traffic (just follow the signs).

The last section of trail is on a dirt road at the bottom of a grass hill. Look for a right across a foot/access bridge down to the Belle Isle parking lot. To continue in the JRPS, follow the signs to the Bell Isle pedestrian bridge).
