Summary

Virginia Scenic Rivers Program’s intent is to identify, designate and help protect rivers and streams that possess outstanding scenic, recreational, historic and natural characteristics of statewide significance for future generations. Construction and development is restricted on designated scenic rivers and adjacent lands. In addition to the designated scenic rivers, the Lower James River has been declared a State Historic River and is subject to similar activity restrictions: http://www.dcr.virginia.gov/recreational_planning/trailjrh.shtml
