Throughout its history, Richmond has battled historic floods. The Flood Wall, completed in 1995, helps protect neighborhoods like Shockoe Bottom and Manchester from extreme weather events. While narrow, it’s popular with runners, hikers, and river watchers. The trail can connect with the Richmond Slave Trail, the Canal Walk, the Robert E. Lee Bridge or the Belle Isle Pedestrian Bridge to form a circuit.
