The James River Water Gap

You could easily drive right by the James River Visitor Center on the Blue Ridge Parkway (milepost 63.6) thinking it was just another overlook. But don't miss it - the view of the James is lovely!

James River Geology tells us that the James starts where the Cowpasture River meets the Jackson River. Long ago it cut its way through the Blue Ridge. Eventually it flows past Richmond and winds up at Jamestown.
