Start near Mount Kato - there is a little park and parking where you can leave your car - and continue out to the Trestle or keep going to Rapidan Dam (for the great pie!). Not a tough ride or walk/run, plenty of shade and gorgeous trees and views. Take the lower route down to the river by the trestle to wade in the water or enjoy a picnic. You can cross the river up on the trestle or down by the park - I recommend taking one route on the way out and the other on the way back so you see it all. A favorite place for us to bring friends and relatives when they visit - and a regular ride for my husband and I.
