W&OD Trail partially cleared in Herndon and Reston: Update 28 Feb 2014 & 10 Mar 2014

Today Northern Virginia Regional Park Authority staff (NVRPA owns the W&OD Trail) used their snow blower to clear about a 4-5 foot wide section of the trail through Herndon and Reston up to Old Reston Ave. We didn't travel further west but we assume the clearing began at trail headquarters at Smith Switch Station just east of Ashburn. We're hoping park staff continue tomorrow from Reston to Vienna and Falls Church.

To our knowledge this is one of the first times that major sections of the trail have been cleared by NVRPA. The trail is a major commuter and recreational route for cyclists. Thanks NVRPA!

Update 28 Feb 2014: See Reston Parcb article about draft letter from Reston Association Board of Directors regarding plowing the W&OD Trail in Reston.

Update 7 Mar 2014: See the Regional Parks blog entry Snow on the W&OD Trail about NVRPA's current philosophy about clearing snow on the trail.
