The best part about Fountainhead over Burke Lake is that Fountainhead is less busy but also a nicely kept park. Very nice lake and the hiking trail is fun with some pretty views. Good elevation changes, plenty of room and walkable for just about anyone....More

Nice trails between Fountainhead Regional Park and Bull Run. Some parts are shared with bikes and/or horses. Healthy family outing. Walk from Fountainhead to Bull Run Marina or continue to Route 28 Fairfax County/Prince William County line.

Very nice destination for those who live in the national capital region. Superior to any such activity near Reagan National on the Potomac. Not as much wildlife as we had hoped.

This is a fantastic park that has something for everyone- hikers, bikers, runners and even horses. Bull Run trail is a lovely out-and-back 18-mile trail. Parking was plentiful and toilet facilities were clean and stocked.
