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.

Started off today's ride looking for MB trails/jumps but ended up eating shit in the mud, and although I found the jumps/they were still being built. 9.2mi — 13h 30m

Awesome Trail with some difficult areas but you can easily get off and walk with it.
