Nov 21, 3:30 pm Reedy Creek to Belle Isle and Back. Dinner maybe.
This is an easy to moderate hike, 3.8 to 4 miles, and is great for beginners. We really enjoy the scenery walking from Reedy Creek to Belle Isle and back. From Belle Isle, you’ll find spectacular views of Richmond’s skyline, Hollywood Cemetery, blue herons and ducks fishing in the James, and an occasional kayak-er or two.
Belle Isle was placed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1995 and its historic significance dates back to 1607 when first explored by Captain John Smith.
You are encouraged to arrive a little early to find parking; the lot fills up quickly especially on sunny days.
Bring water and hydrate often! You should be able to negotiate tree roots, small rocks, and an occasional downed tree limb although much of our route is relatively flat and well-maintained.
Hike at your own risk. Neither Meetup nor your hiking organizer/fellow members assume liability for your safety and well-being.
