“Incredibly beautiful spot in Richmond”
Reviewed April 21, 2014

Pony Pasture Rapids is a great area for outdoor activities. Beautiful small class II whitewater with a safe bottom makes this place ideal for beginner whitewater kayakers. The best spot in richmond to safely tube rapids as well. Its where we go to swim, picnic, or play in the whitewater. There is a flat ground park near the river that also has gravel and dirt trails for walking, jogging, biking, taking the dog out. Be careful in summer- poison ivy inhabits a lot of space off trail.

There are no shops or stores at the park, and during summer weekends, you may need to park and walk to get to the park. Good road nearby for jogging or road biking, as well. Very scenic place to be!
