[ARCHIVED] Trolley Line Trail boardwalk is open


Today we celebrate the completion of the Ashland Trolley Line Trail’s boardwalk and path along Walder Lane so that walkers, joggers, strollers, and bicyclists have a protected trail between Gwathmey Church Road in Hanover County to Ashland’s Carter Park.

With the announcement last October of the regional Fall Line Trail, which aligns with the Ashland Trolley Line Trail, the multiuse path will eventually connect downtown Ashland to downtown Petersburg and every community in between. The Town is excited to finish this segment of the 43-mile route as our regional partners plan and construct their portions.

The Ashland Trolley Line Trail has been a concept discussed in the region for decades to connect Ashland, Hanover, Henrico, and Richmond along the route of the former electric trolley with a multiuse protected path for pedestrians and bicyclists. The Ashland Museum, in partnership with REI, Downtown Ashland Association, and the Town, is developing interpretative signage to tell the history of the trolley route and highlight the trail’s ecosystem. You can see the first sign at the Gwathmey Church Road trailhead.
