Richmond City Highpoint Trip Report

This was one that sort of surprised me. My previous knowledge of Richmond south of the James was that it was not the most economically vital portion of the state. However, the area around the HP was a very nice neighborhood. Obviously, I am still learning about this state!

From I-95, take Chippenham Parkway (VA 150), exit 67, for about 11.5 miles and exit at Huguenot Road (VA 147). Take 147 left for 2.7 miles to the light at Old Gun Road.

I concur with Mike Schwartz that the eastern HP was near a tree to the right of the largest house.

For the northwest area, follow Mike's directions. However, I thought the HP was on the west side of Old Gun Road across from the white house, although I could also argue for the field at #3204. I'm thinking you want to be closer to the city-county line.
