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.

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.

Regularly enjoy hikes along this trail, be they a short two-hour jaunt w my dog, or something longer. Have paddled half of Bull Run as well.

It was an awesome trail. We set out to walk from Bull Run Regional park to Fountain head. We actually only made it to Bull Run Marina. From Buil run park to Hemlock park the trail was extremely muddy which we expected but the trail was not marked well, lots of down trees we had to climb over, go under but due to there massive size most we had to go around by then we were bush whacking and had a hard time relocating the trail. Alternate routes were posted and we found out in order not to back track we had to ford a creeks that were waist deep. At least it cooled us off. Once we got about 1 away from Hemlock Park the trail was very well maintained until we bailed at Bull Run Marina. We had a great time our dogs had a good time. Word of caution be prepared for dogs off leash.

ran this today for about 4 miles. missed the blaze and it turned into a loop back to bull run road. It was ok because of the storm last night. Trail was like a swamp. met a huge turtle at the begining. I will return and finish this trail with 5 -6 mile out back runs. Not interested in this as a full hike.
