Because of my work last weekend, the same work that required me to cancel my four day backpacking trip, my boss told me to take a couple of hours off yesterday, so I used the time to take a three hour lunch break and get in a downtown hike on a brisk but lovely fall day. I decided to use my time to walk near the James River, heading first to Belle Isle - my favorite spot in the city - and from there through James River Park.
I walked a total of 7.25 miles, taking the route marked in purple below, and starting and ending at the star where my office is. I crossed the river on footbridges, having not quite acquired the ability to walk on water! You can see where I did the loop trail on Belle Isle as part of my walk. The route marked in red is the Richmond Liberty Trail that I walked this past spring.
Buttermilk Spring Trail, which I have hiked the length of before.
