Powhatan Wildlife Management Area Professional Guide
Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook
"As Richmond’s bedroom communities sprawl southward, rural Powhatan County seems closer and closer to home. Just west of its namesake county seat, Powhatan Wildlife Management Area (WMA) offers more than a dozen trail miles.
This route takes in most of them, passing through low-lying wetlands, hillside hardwood forest, and fields buffered by hedgerows. As you would expect, your prospects for spotting wildlife are good, but you’ll also see rusting machinery and an old cemetery, reminders of the area’s past as timberland and farmland."
