Bull Run-Occoquan Trail A Suprise Only Minutes From Woodbridge Traffic

By
Real Estate Agent with Integrity Real Estate Group

Bull Run-Occoquan Trail Need a place to get away only a few minutes from Woodbridge VA? Then consider slipping away to the Bull Run-Occoquan Trail off of Old Yates Ford Road just across the Fairfax County line.

You can access the trail at multiple points but today we started just across the street from Bull Run Marina. This portion of the trail is just over 6 miles to reach Fountainhead Park.  If you don't want to go that far just head out along the Occoquan Reservoir for 30 minutes and then turn around and come back.

Occoquan Reservoir-Bull Run TrailMost of the way along the trail you will be walking next to the water and can catch a glimpse of local waterfowl, a deer or two and if you are lucky an eagle may be fishing in the reservoir as well.  The Bull Run-Occoquan Trail is maintained by the Potomac Appalachian Trail Club and is part of an 18 mile section of blazed trail that runs between Fountainhead Park and Bull Run Regional Park in Centreville VA.

For historians the trail passes the site of the original trestle of the Southern Railroad a critical site during the first major civil war battle and the ruins of electric generating plant for Clifton Virginia the first town in Fairfax County to have electricity.

The Bull Run-Occoquan Trail is just another reason why residents of Northern Virginia love living here.  Get out and enjoy it soon.

Hi Cindy, I wish we had trails here. Love walking in the woods. Did it as a kid but now my area is so built up.

A walk around this beautiful trail would make anyone relax.  We have walking trails here, but not much around the lake.

We were stationed in Ft.Belvoir for 2 years and lived in Lorton - our family spent almost all our time in the area parks!

Jackie-though we seem to be all roads and neighborhoods, the local counties and state have done a good job of setting aside parkland and trails for residents.

Kay-we have a number of trails around lakes and water.  It helps that I live on a river so I can walk by water everyday.
