Blackwater Creek meanders its way through various parts of Lynchburg and there are paved trails which go on for many, many miles which are wonderful for riding bicycles, jogging, or simply walking while taking in the beauty of nature. Hollins Mill Park is a great starting place, as is Rivermont Park, and along the bottom (near the river) of downtown Lynchburg.

The Blue Ridge Mountains are less than an hour's drive from downtown Lynchburg and The Blue Ridge Parkway was built such that people can enjoy the wonder and beauty of The Blue Ridge Mountains. There are many routes to get up there; I'm going to recommend going through Elon and heading up to The Otter Creek Lodge, but it's worth the drive any route you choose. There are lookout stops along the way along with picnic table areas and hiking trails, etc. Highly recommended if your schedule and the weather permit such.

I tend to avoid obvious tourist destinations, and Natural Bridge is most definitely such a place, but I still love going there! Not only is the "Natural Bridge" amazing in and of itself, but the walk through the grounds is wonderful. Worth serious consideration if you have a day to spare when the weather's welcoming.

The entrance to Percival's Island is right at the bottom of downtown Lyncburg just on the other side of the railroad tracks below The Craddock-Terry Hotel and if you have any free time at all, this place is worth the visit. There's no charge and no formality; just start walking along the trail - soon after you begin you'll cross The James River - and just stroll along and enjoy what nature has to offer. Wondering off the path is fine too, including hiking down to the river. You're likely to see deer and it's simply a pleasant place to spend a bit of time.
