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 (arguably the most difficult climb in the park system).

At the top of the ramp you'll have to take the road for 3 blocks to a right turn at a stop sign (follow signs for "Northbank Trail"). Continue 1 more block to a parking lot entrance and from here take the trail that continues straight making a right bend after the small wooden bridge creek crossing.

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.
