High Bridge Battlefield

Today, the trail at the High Bridge Trail State Park is 31 miles long and ideally suited for hiking, bicycling and horseback riding. The park’s centerpiece is the majestic High Bridge itself, more than 2,500 feet long and 130 feet above the Appomattox River.  Access the bridge via the trail from River Road in Farmville (Cumberland County) or Camp Paradise Road in Rice (Prince Edward County). The piers of the original Civil War bridge here are still standing.
