Appomattox River & Heritage Trail
Activities at the Appomattox River & Heritage Trail
The Appomattox River is a popular destination for:
  • Bird-watching
  • Canoeing
  • Fishing
  • Whitewater rafting

The Appomattox River flows from west to east through the region from Lake Chesdin, on the border of Dinwiddie and Chesterfield counties, through Petersburg, Colonial Heights, Prince George County and Hopewell. It joins the James River at Hopewell, where the two rivers once served as the pathway for early English settlers into Virginia.

The Friends of the Lower Appomattox River (FOLAR) have developed a series of Blueways (navigable water) and Greenways (hiking trails) that reveal the beauty of the Appomattox River.
