Absolutely beautiful and I plan to come back. I didn't know that I had to pay 10$ because I don't live in Fairfax but it was definitely worth the 10$! I will definitely visit again.

My go-to place for hiking, walking the dogs or running. Fairly easy and flat 4.7 mile trail. Go early as gets busy on nice and sunny days. Free for fairfax county residents ($10 for non-residents).

$10 fee to get into the park for non residents

Great place! In my opinion, it’s much nicer to visit on a bad weather day or week day when it’s less crowded. It can be tough to get through large groups of people bc not everyone shares the trail. I like to connect the lakes and get around 11 miles to run to Mercer and back to the lot. -that is my fave FFX run! I do it 2x a week.

Great run, but the mileage is closer to 4 than 5. Advise going when it's been dry for a few days. It holds some water in low areas causing some slippery and muddy spots.

It was very peaceful and it was beautiful to see the bald eagles that live in the park now. Took internal trails with my pup to avoid the cyclists and runners. I look forward to going back!

Great easy ride without too many hikers on the trail! Would encourage any riders to take a stroll since it appeals to all riders and has great views around the lake! looking forward to next time!

Best at the beginning of the Fall Season due to the beautiful colors (burnt orange, yellow and red) of the autumn leaves. Nice water views and well maintained trail year round.

A beautiful and easy walk around the lake. Beautiful in the spring and fall. Be sure to use the restrooms by the marina as there aren't any on the east side of the lake. Lots of other activities in the park as well, golfing, 18-hole disc golf course, mini train ride for kids and camping and picnic opportunities as well. Enjoy!
