As the river is predicted to be a flood stage the morning of July 13, and the trail we had planned will be underwater, I changed the hike to this.

We'll see highlights of the James River side of Hollywood Cemetery plus a comprehensive tour of Belle Isle.
In Hollywood Cemetery we'll see the graves of the President of the Confederacy plus two American Presidents.
We'll do a comprehensive tour of Bell Isle including its complete perimeter, all of its marked historical sites and its hillside trails.
I predict this 6 mile hike will take about 4 1/2 hours.
The hike begins at the south eastern most part of Riverview Cemetery within view of the James River. The Riverview Cemetery entrance can be found via Google map at address 1401 Randolph St., Richmond 23220. As you enter the cemetery be sure you go to Riverview Cemetery on the left and not Mount Calvary Cemetery on the right. Don't make the mistake of parking at the Riverview Cemetery entrance. Take one of the winding roads all the way to the south eastern most corner of cemetery where you will find ample parking on the grass. You will literally be able to see the river from where your car is parked.
