I wasn't sure what to expect, but I was very impressed.
The campground at Foster Falls was a perfect place to stay, with the visitor center and camp store nearby, and the cliffs of the New River rising up to proved a stunning backdrop. Trail itself was well maintained, with good age, ample rest spots and toilets. Shot Tower makes for a very interesting stop along the way. Looking back at the pictures reminded me of what a nice ride this was.
But the western part, generally from Herndon to Purcellville, is far nicer and less busy than the eastern part in the northern VA suburbs. The eastern part is my home trail and nice for a quick workout ride, but it is super busy with walkers, talkers, dog on long leashes and obnoxious dudes who think they are in the Tour de France.
I like a nice fast ride as much as anyone, but the western portion is not choked with users, much more greenery in a rural-exurban setting, far more beautiful and one that evokes the railroad of yore more, too. It's about 13 miles in that stretch, 26 RT. Great trail for families as it is very flat, has pretty scenery plus a covered bridge and an old railcar at the start.
Decent parking at the beginning of trail. Trail seemed well maintained. We rode the entire trail starting at the Intervale Trailhead on a Tuesday in early July The trail is very well maintained The trail is relatively flat and very smooth. The weather was around 90 degrees, but most of the trail is shaded so not a problem. The scenery along the river and along side the cliffs is spectacular. Since we went in the middle of the week there were very few people on the trail The staff at AlleghanyOutdoors. This is a hidden gem. We were expecting a great ride on this trail only to find closure s and some local neighborhood detour s.
The closure is from about N. Ripley St. Last July I walked the north half of this trail top 20 miles and today I walked the bottom half bottom 20 miles. When I walked the northern half last year, I relied solely on the maps provided by fairfax county, which are High looking to chill Greenway Virginia and white and not particularly detailed. Since I made it through the hike, they obviously got the job done, but not without a lot of backtracking and hunting for trail markers.
For any others considering traversing the entire county by foot-whether in two trips or more-this app will save you from a huge amount of backtracking and stress thinking you have left the trail. Overall, it was a great hike though!
I visited the trail with friends and families and I love it so much. If you enjoy walking or jogging or biking, this is the perfect place. We set out on our gravel bikes from Abington and rode to Whitetop and back.
It was a slow, steady grind to Whitetop. We should have brought more fluid.
Each of us brought two bottles and we burned through those quickly. We were able to stop for Gatorade and cold water on the way back at the Bike Exchange in Damascus. There was nothing open in Whitetop on the day we rode. We rode near Gales and Fries and fossil Falls and the trail was great. Wife and I did the entire trail about 28 miles round trip on Friday, June 18, For context, we rode fat tire ebikes and used low level pedal assist.
The trail is mostly flat, wide, and in excellent shape, packed cinders the whole way, very few bumps. The parts along the river are beautiful, but the trail does wind away from the river a good bit. We were lucky in that the day we went was mild for June with low humidity, however, there's lots of shade.
We will do this trail again, maybe in the Fall when the leaves are changing.
