Can this be seen from the North Anna Battlefield Park? You have to take a 10(?) hour boat ride known as THE HELL TRIP to pass through this? I use to know how to get a land pass to go to the fall whole at the end of the fall line, is that possible anymore?
This wonderful old river is the closest thing to feeling like you are in a mountain creek in these flatlands, you can even see the bottom. My mother would swim in part that is now under lake anna now. It probably was even better before the dam.

p.s. That picture of mom and uncle john is probably early 1930’s on the North Anna River section that is now under lake.

You can get here from North Anna Battlefield Park, but it ‘aint easy. That is actually park land across the river in the photo, but the trail doesn’t go directly to this site.
I also had the pass card to the fall hole, but the man who used to own the land is long dead and the land was sold years ago. You can still get there from the road on the north side of the river with a mile long hike (that’s how I got this photo), or some serious 4-wheeling (I’ve chickened out on the 4-wheeling option in my truck and on my motorcycle – it’s a lot of deep deep mud and deeper ruts).

You gave me the Bug to visit Hanover County today. It ain’t easy seeing the good stuff on the North Anna River, I guess that may be the big charm of it. We couldn’t really leave the paths because of wet leaves and the cold. Rodney knows how to get to Little River Fall Line , may try that next?

So how difficult is it to get to fall hole from the battlefield park?
Is it true the northern side access to fall hole is a nudist beach?

I have gotten to fall hole from the park before. It is possible but not all that easy. It was a few years ago and as I recall there was no trail. Nudist beach? Not in my experience. I think the access from the north side is cut off now, so it is probably an empty beach!
