Bull Run's spacious fields accommodate groups by the hundreds, even thousands, for picnics, camping or special events. Bull Run's scenic woodland and trails offer miles of hiking and solitude. In springtime, acres of bluebells and other wildflowers bloom beside a picturesque, meandering stream. A large outdoor pool is open Memorial Day weekend through Labor Day. Disc golf is open year round. A public shooting center, which includes sporting clays, skeet, trap, wobble trap and indoor archery, is open year-round.

Love the outdoor experience along the water in the heart of urban northern Virginia. Doing the trail in segments.

Started at fountainhead on the blue blazes and hiked in 10 miles and turned around. Nice trail. Loved the hills. Wish people would keep dogs on leashes.

Very disappointing. The trailhead was not clearly marked. Apparently I was supposed to take the White Trail but it was not marked as the Bluebell trail. Then I saw a sign that said to follow the blue blazes. After about 10 minutes I realize that is not correct either. I had the Alltrails map up on my phone and could clearly see I was moving away from my intended trail.
After backtracking and trying to follow the Alltrails map in reverse (this was a loop trail so it didn't matter which direction around I went) I am told to follow the paved road for a bit then cut onto the trail, which I discover is indeed the White Trail. This 'trail' goes beside a discus golf area and a very noisy waterpark. Not what I'd hoped for a Sunday walk in the woods, and a far cry from the Conway Robinson trail I took lkast week, which was a real gem.

Man was this a great trail. It was my first one but I thoroughly enjoyed my 4 mile hike. I'll save the other part oh this trail for another time.
