Date and Time: Sunday, July 15th from 9 AM – 1 pm (depending on pace & carpooling)

Directions: Meeting point at Occoquan Park visitors center/snack bar. From beltway, take I-95 south to exit 160 (VA 123 North), 1.2 miles, turn right into Occoquan park. We will carpool to the start point at near Intersection of Pohick Road and Wadebrook Terrace and hike back to Occoquan.
Information: 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. Each hike is one way, so we will leave some cars at the end point for the return trip. 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 of these hikes 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.
