Bikers should check out the
Mount Vernon Trail. This 18 mile trail runs south from
Roosevelt Island, through downtown Alexandria along the
Potomac River, and continues to
George Washington's historic estate. The trail is paved, so it is suitable for road bikes, and it is mostly flat with only a few difficult hils and sharp turns. Of course, hikers can enjoy this trail as well, as long as they are prepared to share it with a lot of bikers.
Washington & Old Dominion Trail is another great choice. This trail begins in Alexandria and follows the old tracks of the historic Washington and Old Dominion Railroad, heading 45 miles west to
Purcellville. It is paved, making it suitable for bikers and rollerbladers as well as walkers. Numerous
parking lots are available along the trail.
