If you live in our apartments in Lynchburg, VA fall may be one of your most favorite times of year. There may be no better fall weather in any state and Virginia also has some of the best vistas; fall foliage makes them even more spectacular. Here is a look at the top 5 places in Lynchburg parks and trails where you can enjoy the next few weekends.
1. Miller Park
Miller Park is a great place to spend a fall afternoon. Bring friends and play in the leaves or take the family’s fall photo with an elegant backdrop of the Aviary. Miller Park is full of red and orange this season.
2. Blackwater Creek Trail
Leaves are falling down all along the trail of Blackwater Creek. Come take a walk and hear the crisp sound under your feet. Don’t forget the parks and trails are dog friendly! Bring your furry friend with you on your next outing.
3. Hollins Mill Park
Hollins Mill is a real treat in the fall season–a beautiful mix of green, red, and orange backdrop against the Dam. Bring a blanket and pack a few sandwiches and relax in the grass for an old fashioned picnic. The weather can get cool so don’t forget a light jacket and some hot chocolate!
4. Ivy Creek Park
Tucked away in the west side of the city, Ivy Creek Park offers more than just a great view. Bring your fishing pole and enjoy catching trout and catfish at Clemmons Lake, or enjoy a stroll on the trail following the edge of the lake.
5. The Stone Overlook at Riverside Park
This is the ideal location to experience a few moments of serenity in one of our most popular parks. The site overlooks the James River from the south side. Whichever park or trail you end up on remember to capture the radiant scenery. Happy leaf-peeping.
