UPDATE 4/15:  Additional volunteer work has extended a rough-cut version of this trail from where we left off on March1 out to Compton Road, a distance of 3/4 mile. ============================================= Four volunteers joined forces on Saturday to begin building the new Cub Run trail at Bull Run Regional Park. The morning started out bitterly cold, about 15 degrees, though it warmed to the 40s by the time we called it quits around 1:30. It will be a key link in the West Fairfax Trail from Bull Run to Reston, where we have led a series of hikes. Previous hikes have followed the Event Center driveway for this mile-long segment.  The trail we started building on Saturday offers a superior hiking experience, more in tune...

Nestled between Pohick Bay and Belmont Bay in southern Fairfax County lies a forested peninsula known as Mason Neck. Once home to founding father George Mason of Gunston Hall, today five thousand acres are protected as public parkland within four different parks. In recent years the various park agencies that manage Mason Neck have been working to unite the area in a web of newly constructed trails. The central piece of this new trail network is the Potomac Heritage National Scenic Trail. The PHT is rapidly nearing completion throughout the length of the peninsula. Beginning at the soon to be completed Mason Neck Gateway Center adjacent to the Gunston Elementary School along Gunston Road, the PHT runs through the BLM managed Meadowood Recreation Area before crossing...

Prince William County is planning to build a new section of the Potomac Heritage National Scenic Trail, a 3000+ foot boardwalk across the beautiful estuary of Neabsco creek in Woodbridge.  Detailed design is underway.  The goal is to build it within the next 2-3 years. Design Details can be found on Prince William Parks website.  The boardwalk connects to the Metz wetlands area, which was the northern terminus of our First Day Hike on January 1, 2014.  It will allow the trail to continue north across Neabsco Creek to the historic Rippon Lodge, and then to the Rippon VRE station and through the Featherstone Wildlife Refuge. Supervisor Principi of Woodbridge has been spearheading the effort on the project, with help from advocates...
