Forest Hill Park

This month’s James River hike is a moderate to 7.5 mile loop that includes the North Bank and Buttermilk trail as well as parts of Forest Hill Park and Belle Isle.  It is a CVT favorite due to its convenient location, outstanding views of the river and the Richmond skyline, and challenging terrain.  It is also a great hike for anyone interested in transitioning from our shorter, easier hikes to more strenuous all-day mountain hikes.  Expect to spend three hours on the trail.  Hikers need to be alert, as mountain bikers frequent these trails. 

**Dogs are allowed but please note that the trail may be difficult for dogs in some spots and dogs sometimes struggle with the T-Pot bridge.**

Join us for an optional St. Patrick’s Day post-hike pint at O’Toole’s!
