BIG THANK YOU to the man in the New York T-shirt who was cutting the overgrowth headed west after the bridge at Route 28! You clearly went home, got your stuff, and was just taking care of business! Truly appreciate you helping and staying safe in the process as the trail was busy today! Your actions made a difference today!!!
Greetings. Does anyone have info on the status of Dominion Energy construction between Ashburn and Leesburg? The company's website doesn't have the details.
Hi Trail Administors!
Is there any way to crowd source funding or something to repair this broken drinking fountain at intersection of the trail and Lawson Road SE in Leesburg?
It’s been turned off for about two years now IIRC, and it’s really the only on-trail fountain between Leesburg and Trailside.
Some of us runners REALLY miss this stop!
Thanks!
Dear W&OD Trail Community, please advise if anyone you know have found a lost Volvo Key Fob along the trail near the Town of Purcellvile, VA.

Many thanks in advance for your help.
Hi folks, are others also finding lots of overhanging branches and vegetation on the trail in the Ashburn/Leesburg area while doing bicycle rides? How do we go about requesting some maintenance? Right now they are a hazard either way, you either duck down constantly or just ride through, or move over to the other side but then have to keep an extra vigilant eye out for oncoming traffic going the other way. Thanks.
This bridge spans Beaverdam Run in Ashburn Village. Where can I learn about the history of this bridge and others like it along the trail?
Does anyone know what kind of snake this is? Spotted on the on the W&OD horse trail in Ashburn. (It's small--at first I thought it was a bungee cord.)
Prescription eye glasses lost on/near W&OD - wire rim progressive lens. Lost during a bike ride yesterday (Wednesday 5/19) probably somewhere along a twenty mile stretch of the W&OD regional park between Fairfax Co Pkwy and Clarks Gap (Rt 9). If found please call or text 703-581-2193 or reply here. Thank you.

I lost a key fob for a Toyota while walking the trail yesterday. I was between Belmont area (around mile 30) and Leesburg, on both paved and walking trial. Appreciate it if anyone finds it to message me! Thanks!
I just wanted to brag that the Trottin' Oxen Run Club, who start all our runs from the Old Ox Brewery, (between mile marker 25 and 25.5) did our part to clean up our section of the trail for a couple miles in each direction.
We run, and sometimes we plog to make the trail a cleaner place!
LoCo Ruckers W&OD Trail Clean Up Success!

We had 8 awesome locals show for today's litter pickup! Plus a 9th guy who saw what we were doing from his porch and joined in! We counted 22 bags filled with litter (counting a few smaller bags as half of contractor bags) covering the area of the W&OD Trail from Rt 28 to a little passed the Sterling Blvd Crossing.

45 miles of paved trail, in Northern Virginia, for walking,running, bicycling and skating and 32 miles of adjacent gravel trail for horseback riding.

Operating as usual

For the next few days, Dominion Energy will be performing work related to the Ashburn electrical line re-string. This may close small sections of gravel trail near the Ashburn Rd parking lot, but the lot itself should remain fully accessible.

Please note: Tomorrow, Wednesday, between approximately noon and 3:30 p.m., Dominion Energy will be delivering some very large equipment to the substation being constructed near the Pacific Blvd parking lot. This will require many small, back-and-forth, Austin-Powers-in-a-cart type of turns, which may block access to or egress from the lot for several minutes, so please plan accordingly.

Work continues on the trail near Wiehle Ave in Reston. Stone dust has been laid between Isaac Newton Square and Wiehle Ave, but the goal of finishing the section of trail east of Wiehle today has been delayed due to anticipated storms this evening, so the plan is now, weather permitting, to lay the rest of the dust by next Tuesday.

Just a quick note that a VDOT contractor will be repaving a small section of Smith Switch Road at the W&OD Trail intersection tomorrow (Friday May 28th). Work will begin around 6 am to avoid impact on trail traffic and should be finished by 11 am. The contractor will also make accommodations for safe crossing when needed.

Preliminary work is being performed at the Wiehle Ave intersection in Reston in preparation for the eventual bridge there. Over the next couple of weeks, Dominion Energy will be making improvements to the gravel trail so that it may be used as a detour as they relocate facilities.
