Fairfax County Parkway Trail

Trail Map

Description Suggest an Edit

The Fairfax County Parkway Trail parallels Fairfax County Parkway/State Route 286 on its route across Fairfax County, Virginia. While the paved trail varies in width and condition, most of the trail is usable for walking, biking and inline skating. The trail connects to many other community trails and side paths along its route, as well as the popular W&OD Trail near Reston and the Cross County Trail in West Springfield.

The southernmost segment from Newington to Fort Belvoir is disconnected from the bulk of the pathway, and there is another gap in the trail near Fairfax Station. The latter can be bridged by using the Ox Road Sidepath and another short path along Burke Centre Parkway.

Parking and Trail Access

You can access the Fairfax County Parkway Trail wherever the road itself intersects another road. There are no official parking areas for the trail.
