A better take out is on the down river, left side of the 220 bridge. There is a nice parking lot with a gravel road down to the water's edge. Head of James Road has very limited parking and feel like you are in someone's back yard. The 220 bridge is less than a half mile more paddling and an easy take out.

During the high waters of Spring 2003, there has been a noticeable increase in reported confrontations between boaters and property owners in Virginia. Please remember to be respectful and courteous to property owners; do not trespass; and avoid confrontation in order to preserve access in the future.
