Paddle Board 


Riveredge Park to Joshua Falls

Ages 8+       Class I      Paddle Board ONLY

Hop in the refreshing James River amidst the urban backdrop of Lynchburg City. You will float past the city fountain, and Percival's Island, as well as the historic Craddock Terry Hotel. As you meander over 8 miles of river, you will watch the landscape transition to  sprawling pastures and riverbank forests. A few Class I ripples keep the water moving and add some gentle intrigue to your trip, but all in all, this is relaxation at it's finest. Expect this trip to take all day, and plan to bring plenty of water to drink!
