Have been on this trail 100 times, love it every time. My son loves it too. We live in Arlington, I have taken all the way to leesburg but most of the time we go as far as Reston or use it to connect to other trails.

We rode today from Purcellville to Ashburn .the town of Purcellville is a quaint place. Loved the ride past farms, creeks, and mansions. Lots of people on the trail and you have to be careful especially when passing. I would love to ride the whole thing one day.

We live close to this trail. It is a very nice trail for walking, biking, horse-riding, and jogging. Amazing to think that this trail can connect you to DC and places beyond. Cyclists get a great feel for the communities of Northern Virginia and can easily connect to other trails such as the Mount Vernon and C & O Trails.... More

Check with your hotel or online to find quick and easy access to the trails that are part of the W & OD park. These are well-used, often lighted, paved trails with larger park areas & playgrounds. Walk, jog, ride your bike, push a stroller, walk the dog. Enjoy!

Fantastic place for a long, or short bike ride. Go all the way to Purccelville and enjoy a meal at Magnolia. You can park at numerous places along the trail for a long or shout ride.

I'm not from NoVa but we are considering the area to move our business and the family. I wanted to see the stretch between Leesburg and Purcellville and not just from Rt 7 business. Its interesting because despite the beautiful Virginia countryside and its classic contours, its marred with endless condos and mcmansions. Despite that, I couldn't help but wish... More

This should be the #1 attraction in the northern Virginia area for anyone who is physically active and especially if they enjoy biking (runners and horseback riders are also abundant). The trail is 45.0 miles long, stretching from Shirlington to Purcellville. It is extremely well managed and maintained; I have seen maintenance crews regularly working on the trail and trimming...

Well maintained lovely long trail excellent for running, biking or just walking. There is a dirt trail alongside the paved trail so you can choose either one. Once in a while you will cross an intersection that might have facilities etc. but it is mostly through green wooded areas.
