Trails featured in the Washington PostTry trails this spring is the title of a Dr. Gridlock article on local recreational biking and walking trails. In our recommendations we pointed out that bicyclists often prefer to ride on the road and that the Fairfax County Bike Route Map contains many good routes in the area. The W&OD Trail is often so crowded on the weekends that we often avoid it. Too many fast cyclists compete with dog walkers, joggers, people on roller blades, etc.
What we hope to see in Fairfax in the future is a map of good on-road loop routes for cyclists, much like the Self-Guided Bike tours on the BikeArlington site.
Check out the Dr. Gridlock article for short descriptions and links to resources on the most popular local trails.
