Description

This trail is good no matter which way you travel it. On one end, you have Great Falls Park and its trail system. On the other end, you have Occoquan with its restaurants and boutique shops. Because this trail goes through a busy and heavily populated county, there are tons of locations through which you can get on and off the trail. In fact, my guess is that you can be on this trail and not even know it. There are plenty of places to grab a drink if you need it as well.

The big plus is that there are also sections where you'll have no idea you are in such a populated area.

The cross country trail is a nice idea, but needs work. The water crossing can be slippery and deep at times. There are places on the trail where you can get lost. The marking of the the turns on the trails needs a lot of improvement. The trail section from Fairfax City Ball park to the turn near the Park Rec center is all unmarked sidewalk. Apr 7, 2016
