As another reviewer mentioned this trail is trashed and unkept. It immediately reminds you of the lack of care placed into African American communities and neighborhoods. Funny how Virginia is full of beautiful well preserved trails and pristine historic sites even dating back to the...More

The Richmond Slave Trail is a great urban hike that carries a somber message about the city's role in the slave trade. If you are an out-of-town visitor, the slave trail carries some logistical challenges. It's decently sign-posted from its start at Ancarrow's Landing, a...More

Hi Jenny, If you allow 90 minutes, that should be enough, but a little more might be better. That way you shouldn't feel rushed. I walked it yesterday with a group of 8 people. We did not go up to the African-American Church... More
