The Richmond Liberty Trail
A walking tour of our region’s story.
The Richmond Liberty Trail is a walking route that connects many of downtown Richmond's historic sites, attractions and neighborhoods, including 15 national historic landmarks. This 6.2 mile (10K) trail is marked with a logo painted on the sidewalk, and supplementary arrows show you which direction to walk. There’s no real beginning or end to the Richmond Liberty Trail. It’s all self-guided – a continuous loop intended for people who want to experience portions of Richmond's nationally significant history on foot. Walk portions of the route based on what interests you. For example, in Shockoe, the Richmond Liberty Trail connects with the Richmond Slave Trail and the Virginia Capital Trail.
The Richmond Liberty Trail is a collaborative effort among Richmond's business, tourism and history communities. For more information, contact Bill Martin, The Valentine, 804.649.0711 x340, or Katherine O'Donnell, Richmond Region Tourism, 804.783.7414.
