Burke VRE Trail Description

Burke VRE Trail lies within Pohick Stream Valley Park and provides an important commuting and recreational corridor, connecting a shopping center, residential neighborhoods, and a Virginia Railway Express (VRE) station that also serves Amtrak trains.

It parallels the active commuter line for much of its length, a facility known as a rail-with-trail. The trail is paved, largely wooded, and includes one stream crossing. Bike racks, as well as enclosed bike lockers are available at the train station on the trail's west end.

Parking and Trail Access

Free public parking is available on the west end of the trail at the Burke Centre Virginia Railway Express (VRE) Station (10399 Premier Court). Parking can also be found on the trail's east end at the Burke Village II Shopping Center (9570 Burke Road).

Burke VRE Trail Reviews

This is a hidden gem in the middle of suburbia. It's great for a quick after-dinner stroll or a short ride for little ones learning how to ride a bike. Perfect place to walk the dog. Not very busy; all paved; woods on one side; elevated train tracks parallel the path with a small, babbling creek in between. Mostly just commuter trains running during rush hour. Would be wheel chair accessible except for one spot that crosses a shallow water run off using cement stepping columns. The crossing is short enough to pick up a stroller and carry it across.
