Route Information
Starting out at Kelly's Cove on the James River, you are about 3 river miles from the Missouri. Once you reach the James River Confluence, you will be on the north side of James River Island. The St. Helena access point is just on the other side of the island. This stretch of the river has kept the natural features that many others have lost. More...
