A peaceful doubletrack trail around Lake Accotink.

Overview

Features: Birding — Fall Colors — Lake — River/Creek — Views — Wildlife
Dogs: Leashed

Description

There are multiple ways to access this trail, including the park's main entrance, offshoot trails in local neighborhoods and the Lake Accontink Access Trail. There are a couple of steep, but short climbs on the trail. Brief sections are paved but the majority is doubletrack with rock and roots. After rains, parts of the trail get really muddy and the area near the dam can flood. Trail is used by walkers, mountain bikers, and runners.

Nice and shady. Not super well marked (ended up in Wakefield), but mostly shady and some good wildlife sightings (turtles and snakes). Ice cream at... 6.3mi
