Down here in Prince William County lies a relatively large park, preserved as one of the few remaining piedmont forest ecosystems in the National Park Service. Within its 18,000 acres are 35 miles of hiking trails, hundreds of acres open to primitive camping, a scenic paved road looping through the park (incidentally named Scenic Drive), and a plethora of wildlife and plant life for city folks to enjoy. Four miles of the Scenic Drive have a dedicated bike lane providing a paved, relatively flat surface ideal for beginning bicyclists. More experienced cyclists with mountain bikes have the option of off-road biking on any of the 10 fire roads in the park. Trail Surface: Paved and unpaved park roads.
