Paddle Tour Brochure 2011 Learn to Kayak 2011 Programs VIEW PARK MAP Directions: To reach Fountainhead, take I-95 south of the Beltway, exit at Occoquan and travel north on Rt. 123 approximately 5 miles. Turn left onto Hampton Road and drive 3 miles to the entrance on the left.

Just look for the trail to start in the parking lot behind you. There is no loop. You walk til you want to turn around. Difficulty​ level hard.

Nice hike for the family - we hiked for about 90 minutes and encountered 1 or 2 mountain bikes on the trail- both extremely friendly. Went out on a Sunday morning around 9:30 and the trail was quiet but got busier on the walk back. Pretty easy with a few hills, no views. Good for a really hot day because the sun barely shines thru the tree cover.

Inaccurate description. This trail is for mountain biking only, not walking/hiking.

Nice mountain trail but not very scenic.

Excellent ride with terrific views. Don't attempt riding without mountain bike. Recommend no younger than very experienced 8 year old.

Great trail for a good hike, not too hard but you'll get a good work out in. I went with my dog and he loved it and even drank from the stream.
