Point of Honor Trail
The Point of Honor Trail is a 1.5 mile paved, multi-use section of the Blackwater Creek Bike trail which meanders beside the Blackwater Creek as it journeys eastward towards its confluence with the mighty James River. The trail connects back to one end of the primary Blackwater Creek Bikeway trail, or visitors can continue along the spur trail of Riverwalk to downtown and Percival's Island.
Hollins Mill/Point of Honor
Along the way, the trail passes the historic sites of Hollin's Mill, which is now a grassy parkland, and the historic home known as Point of Honor. The trail is considered a moderately easy walk and many families can be found there on weekday afternoons and on the weekends.
The Point of Honor Trail crosses Blackwater Creek at Hollins Mill Park via a low-water ford, which may be closed during periods of high water. The Point of Honor Trail section also provides access to the Creekside Trail and is located within the confines of the beautiful Blackwater Creek Natural Area.
Visitors to Point of Honor can enjoy an important historical link to the City's past while visiting the Lynchburg Museum systems Point of Honor facility. The carefully restored home of Dr. George Cabell, Sr., friend and physician of patriot Patrick Henry, serves as an elegant reminder of days gone by. A gift shop and meeting facility is also located on site.
