“One of my favorite places to go for a nice walk in the woods.”

Walney Visitor Center
Ranked #8 of 17 things to do in Chantilly

We go here every few weekends to walk in the woods. My son loves it here and is always asking to go. All the trails are pretty easy to navigate and is good for all ages.
There is rarely a lot of people out on the trails which is really nice, it's close by and an easy escape from the hustle and bustle of the suburban surroundings.

Nice walking/hiking paths in this area. There is a path that goes from the visitor's center to Walney Pond. Across the street from the pond is Cabell's Mill. From Cabell's Mill you can pick up a path that goes along Big Rocky Run. It's a beautiful, well-maintained path. Many folks go to Cabell's Mill to have wedding receptions or to have professional pictures taken on the beautiful grounds. The pond is fun for looking at fish, geese, and turtles.

A great place for a short hike, a good nature center for elementary age kids. Fun local place to enjoy the seasonal changes.

Arts in the Park on Saturday mornings in the summer are GREAT!!! My three year old loves the events. We come for the Arts but stay for the nature. The show takes maybe an hour, then we need to spend another hour or more looking at all the nature. Turtles in a pool, snakes in the visitor center. What's not to love for a three-year old boy?

I love this little park. Discovered it just last year while geocaching and never realized how nice it was - lived here for 15 years. Great trails, nice for a day out to discover nature. And of course there are several caches to find if that is your thing.
