Over the last 15 years the Fairfax Trails and Streams has pieced together a 43 mile trail which runs from Great Falls Park to Occoquan. Existing trails have been improved and connections built to form this trail. We will hike it in 5 sections, on 5 separate Sundays, one per month starting in March at Great Falls, VA. This is a mostly level trail, winding through forests and communities and usually along streams. It can be muddy, so hiking boots are strongly recommended. All sections will start at 9am and take between 3 and 4 hours. A lunch will be organized after each hike. A map of the trail can be found at http://www.fairfaxcounty.gov/parks
