Are you looking for a trail that is nice but at the same time short? Well, then this is the trail for you. This trail goes from Wakefield park all the way down near the lake. This trail is most of the time in the woods. In the fall and even in the spring and summer there are places on the trail where you are able to see the lake. There are lots of great places to take photos of nature. So if you are someone whole loves nature then this is the trail for you. Be careful in the fall when the leaves start to fall they get on to the trail and it can sometimes be hard to ride your bike. But the fall is some of the best time to ride your bike here for that the trees have changed. If you want to go some were near Arlington Va or Fairfax to see great tree colors this is the trail to ride.

Access Info

The trail starts in Wakefield park and then you go under the bridge to keep going on the trail.

       This is an amazing trail that if you are looking for a place to ride your bike after work. There are so many nice things to see around here. Also it is still ok if the trails are a little wet you can still ride them. The trails are best to be ridden in the spring, Summer, Fall, Winter.
