This year marks the 40th anniversary of the James River Association. To celebrate this anniversary we’ll be releasing Top 40 lists throughout the year celebrating some of the awesome experiences the James River watershed has to offer.

In honor of Earth Month, we have surveyed our staff to bring you the Top 40 Hikes in the James River watershed. So here they are, in no particular order, 40 places to take a hike!


21. Governor’s Land Conservation Easement (co-held by James River Association)
33. James River Heritage Trail (Riveredge Park)
