Hidden gem within the busy NoVA area, very shady through some dense foliage though through a bit of civilization. Lake views are pretty, especially if you like to people watch as the lake’s busy in summer. Recommended for all age groups for easy (some up & down) hiking in the area.

Awesome trail! Most people were at the end where we didn’t loop around, so we avoided to maintain distance. Lots of animals out! We saw turtles, loons, herons, tadpoles, and bullfrogs!

A nice paved walking trail. It was a little hard to navigate around the construction by the shopping center, but I got it done. Pretty views when you’re walking around the lake, but there is a lot of walking in residential neighborhoods. I would do this again.

Really nice little lighthouse. Trail was a bit muddy in some places. Very flat, scenic.

Easy short peaceful loop. Will have to walk about a mile to get to trail. Joints Point closed due to COVID19

Stroller friendly. Shaded. Through some neighborhoods. Not to many views of lake.

Paved & shaded. Great for a run w doggies :)

Heads up, there are construction fences at the trail's beginning/end so you have to do a little creative navigating. Otherwise, it was a pleasant walk through a bit of woods but mostly townhouses. As someone nearing 76, the uphills were a bit challenging but doable.

Great for birding!

Great loop to get out of the house. Passes through many residential neighborhoods. Hills were great for getting the HR up. Couldn’t complete the whole loop on the map due to construction that blocked off the path. It starts behind Red’s Table. Other than that, it was a nice walking trail close by.

Lovely walk. Like a roller coaster around the lake and through the forest!

The most beautiful serene park I’ve encounter thus far. A must visit. No bikes

Easy paved walk with pretty lake views through a neighborhood & golf course.

Early morning walk to avoid the corona virus crowd. Parking very limited actually the lot is closed off the Mt. Vernon Trail, and the trailer parking will get you a ticket. I parked across the parkway. Getting to the Boardwalk is muddy and actual washed out, but boots will allow you to pick your way. Reward with three barres owls, but no yellow headed blackbird.

BEAUTIFUL trail!! We parked at the shopping center and made our way around the lake. The trail was perfectly marked and we never got lost. We had a great adventure!!

Nice trail in Reston. A section of closed off note near South Lakes Shopping Center at Redd’s Table so you have to walk through the parking lot. Well marked trail, nice views of the lake.

Wonderful place for adults and kids alike- but currently closed because of COVID-19.

Beautiful flat trail through woods and wetlands. Went with my kiddos and I was really happy I’d brought our stroller so my toddler could get in once her legs got tired. Bathroom at trailhead: I think so, in the visitor’s center Stroller friendly: yes

A nice outing for everyone. Flat trails and easily marked. Not a lot of shade near the waterfront, but excellent views. Well worth your time.

Trail closes at four. Groundskeeper will not let you in up to ten minutes before four. Kind of a let down.
