The Burke Lake Loop Trail offers a nearly 5-mile route for a pleasant walk or bike, while enjoying the beautiful scenery around Burke Lake in Fairfax. Since the Burke Lake Loop Trail is within Burke Lake Park, it provides access to a variety of activities. Play a round of mini golf, stop and get some ice cream, go camping, or take a class at the park. The Burke Lake Loop Trail also connects to Lake Mercer Loop Trail and Ox Road Sidepath.
Parking is available at Burke Lake Park (7315 Ox Rd., Fairfax Station).
I walked a whole circle around the lake. Took me 2hours and some minutes. Wasn’t challenging because the view was great. About 15600 steps. Really great.
Loved the trees. The lake is soo beautiful. It’s a shared trail and at times is quite busy. Everyone listens and will move to their right. It’s not very hilly, great for a beginner. I loved it, so I did 2 loops!
Not hard to do, difficult enough to present a challenge for a beginner, super enjoyable, big trees guarding the entire loop and fantastic lake views
I absolutely love this trail. It’s everything you desire in a trail. It’s so beautiful and so peaceful ¿¿¿¿¿¿¿¿¿¿
Great loop that is around 4.5 miles. My favorite everyday run.
Very easy to navigate with little ones. Although it is advertised as 4.5, we ended up walking close to 6 miles. It would also be a great running trail, lots of traffic on a Saturday morning.
