Raven's Roost

Lynchburg is an outdoorsman's paradise. Numerous hiking trails snake like veins through the city and the surrounding countryside while the Appalachian Trail, Blue Ridge Parkway, and Jefferson National Forest are just a short drive away. Those preferring more watery diversions will enjoy the canoeing, fishing, and tubing offered by the historic James River right in downtown Lynchburg.
