Hanover breaks ground on northern section of Fall Line Trail

Community members, local leaders, and several organizations were in attendance on Tuesday, April 23 to officially break ground on Hanover’s section of the Fall Line Trail. It was a warm, sunny morning, and a number of those present had biked or walked to the event.

The groundbreaking occurred on the Hanover side of the Ashland Trolley Line Trail. The .85-mile paved path runs south from Carter Park and is to be the northmost section of the Fall Line Trail. Ashland Mayor Steve Trivett joked in his remarks that the other six jurisdictions had better hurry up — “we’ve finished our trail!”
