Industrial Heritage

Industrial Heritage


Stretching from Bellemeade Road to Galena Avenue in Chesterfield County, theb Fall Line travels along US Route 1 for nearly 7 miles. While today the landscape is dominated by asphalt and fast-moving cars, the future of this corridor lies in trail- oriented revitalization, transportation access and safety for local communities. The Fall Line through Route 1 brings together stories of industrial strength and roadside diners, with new comforts and amenities to help any Fall Line user continue on their journey. These local flavors will create a standout destination area unlike anywhere along the rest of the trail.

  • Numerous trailheads and neighborhood access points
  • Signalized crossings along US-1
  • Trailhead with parking near the Bellwood Drive-In Flea Market
  • Pop-Up site opportunities near Summer Hill Preschool, the TB Smith Community Center, and the Future Broad Creek Park
