Only thing holding this review back from five stars is that there are ALWAYS spiderwebs across the trail. I have to constantly stop my bike to brush spiders off my arms, head, legs, and handlebars. Not sure what can be done with them, but if...More

Approximately 16 miles of trails, being a railroad trail it is as flat and straight as they were able to make it. There are some scenic parts along the way. If you enjoy getting away from the crowds while enjoying some exercise in the outdoors...More

You need a private permit to walk this trail. Have to get it via mail, so allow sometime to get it. Watch for horses. Some areas of the tail can be quite muddy for a few days after a rain.

Beautiful nature trail. Passes through beautiful nature areas of King George. I live adjacent to the trail. People walk it, jog, and ride bikes. Occasionally someone might ride a horse. Some areas easier to traverse than others.

I love hiking the part of this trail (from 610 east toward Dahlgren) that winds past the marsh where there is so much wildlife to be experienced! :)

This trail is by my house and I love having access to it. A little buggy in the summer and you have to spray insect repellant for safety, but this trail is amazing and convenient for long runs.

Been using the Rail Trail for a couple of years to train for distance running. Very peaceful (except where is crosses the Northern Virginia Gun Club) but decidedly rough. Rails and most ties have been removed and a lot of gravel/rock has been added in...More
