“A tour of the Lake Fairfax Park using the W&OD Trail, the Cross County Trail, and the Rails to River Trail.”— Chris Kroehler
The W&OD Trail is obviously marked and very easy to follow, but watch when to turn off to get on the Cross Country Trail (CCT). You'll take the CCT until it meets up with the Rails to River Trail near the Leesburg Pike.
The Cross County Trail (CCT) and Colvin Run Trail are both marked, but it helps a lot to familiarize yourself with the map.
Once in Lake Fairfax Park, there are signs with trail maps at different places.
