CVT returns to the trail! Explore part of Richmond’s history as we explore the Richmond Slave Trail, Church Hill, and Shockoe Bottom.

I thought this one might be appropriate given recent events. This popular CVT “Sundays on the James” hike features the historic Richmond Slave Trail, Great Shiplock Park, as well as parts of Church Hill and Shockoe Bottom.  We will pass by the Reconciliation Statue and the site of Lumpkin’s Slave Jail.
