    #2 White Rock Hill

    Does your dog agree with the sentiment that whoever said, "Virginia is for lovers" probably came up with the phrase while exploring Percival's Island Nature Area? This is one of the best places to enjoy native wildlife and untouched natural landscapes. The island parallels an old mile-long railroad bed, and the island itself runs a mile and half long. The island was originally an industrial area, but the visages of time have turned this place over to the dogs! The best way to explore the island is by way of the Riverwalk Trail, which begins at the Central Virginia Training Center and ends in Downtown Lynchburg. The island's a great place for a nice, long walk with Fido.
