The Powerline is a fast technical red grade trail that travels from the main car park down beneath the path of the high voltage powerline towards the River Derwent.

This trail was built in partnership between the Northeast Freeride Association (NEFA) and the Forestry Commission and is one of a suite of trails newly open in the Wood. The others are moderate 'blue' grade trails that follow the extensive forest road network.

Powerline Mountain Bike Trail can be started from Chopwell Wood Main Car Park in Chopwell Woodland Park. High Spen, Chopwell, Rowlands Gill, Gateshead, and Newcastle are the nearest towns or villages.
