Time to Go A'splorin!

Joshua gets a no-prize with a map for bringing us news of the opening of an extensive new multi-use trail in our area:

A 40-mile trail connecting northern and southern Fairfax County, which will open officially with a day-long celebration Saturday, could give root to a network of walking and biking trails in the congested county, officials said yesterday.

A more detailed description of the trail (found here) makes it sound less like a smooth ride and more like the set of connected disparate trails that it is, so I don't think we're talking about a North-South W&OD here. Still, anything that provides bike opportunities away from cars is always worth exploring!

eMail this entry!

that rat...that no prize should totally go to me! I'm the one that found out about it and emailed him all the info! dirty stealing no prize rat! ;o)

Some areas of the trail are unpaved, probably better for mountain bikes. But this is just the start. I read somewhere that there are plans to pave most of them. Still a neat idea and great for trail users of all sorts.

Well - since at least one of us has a bike sturdy enough to stand up to the rigors of an unpaved road, I guess exploring might be in order. Roadie.
