 Intersecting Horse Trails


  • Colvin Run Horse Trail A Reston path, beginning one block off the W&OD, at #1807 Michael Farraday Court. (Mile 17.x) A natural-surface trail, it winds through the wooded valley of Colvin Run to Lake Fairfax Park. Inside this large park, generally follow Colvin Run on the south bank. On the eastern edge of the park, the horse trail resumes. It crosses Hunter Mill Road and it ends across Route 7 from Colvin Mill. By crossing Route 7 at the light at Carpers Farm Way, equestrians can continue on the trail (it resumes at the Fairfax County building). The trail fords Difficult Run four times between Route 7 and Georgetown Pike (Route 193). The trail ends at the Potomac River. Directions: trail begins on the western edge of the rear parking lot of #1807 Michael Farraday Court.

  • Clarks Crossing Park (Mile 13.x) 3.2 miles of trails which connect with private trails in a neighborhood to the West. In the park itself, you will find a dressage ring.

  • Two Creeks Nature Area Mile 20.2 A hiking-equestrian loop trail on 19 acres, some of the prettiest land on the trail, between Goose Creek and Sycolin Creek.
