Power Line – Hanover/Henrico Counties

Power Line – Hanover/Henrico Counties


Traveling south from Cobbs Road, the Fall Line trail begins a nearly six mile segment along a wide power line easement. This character area is dominated by forests and farmland in the northern approach to the Chickahominy River crossing just north of Woodman Road. Continuing south, the trail passes through the suburban neighborhoods of Glen Allen, crosses I-295 and connects to commercial, institutional, and recreational destinations on either side of Parham Road.
