Lake Ridge Community Park

East End Trail: Cotton Mill to Lake Ridge Marina is a 5.5 mile lightly trafficked out and back trail located near Woodbridge, Virginia that features a river and is good for all skill levels.

Distance: 5.5 miles Elevation Gain: 400 feet Route Type: Out & Back

dog friendly





partially paved




Trail is mostly flat with minor elevation changes and follows streams most of the way so very relaxing. 3 miles end to end or 6 miles if you go out and back. 2nd half of trail follows edge of Occoquan Reservoir and will lead you to Lake Ridge Marina. Follow the LRPA trail markers and the blue paint markings on trees. There are a couple of small stream crossings to navigate - you can carefully hop from rock to rock or wear some waterproof shoes - use caution if you go after rains as that will make the crossings a bit more hairy but anyone in decent shape with good balance should be fine.
