North of the James
If chilling isn’t what you’re about, North Bank Trail provides an excellent challenge for hikers and mountain bikers. This advanced trail runs uninterrupted from Pumphouse Park to theTredegar Parking lot and offers panoramic views of the river unavailable in other sections of the Park.
Technical and fast flowing, this singletrack is rocky and rugged in spots with some steep climbs and fast descents. The trail can be elongated by crossing the Boulevard (Nickel) Bridge and hooking up with the Buttermilk, Forest Hill, and Belle Isle Trails creating a mega loop.
