View: Start Location


  1. Exit the Village Center at the east exit and turn right onto North Shore Drive. 
  2. Follow North Shore Drive to Weihle Ave, (~0.4 miles).  It’s way safer to take the pedestrian overpass.  Be very careful if you don’t take the pedestrian bridge.
  3. Continue on North Shore Drive to the end at Uplands Pool (~0.4 miles)
  4. Right in front of pool building and right on the path downhill.
  5. At the bottom of the hill, turn left onto the dirt trail.
  6. After the foot bridge, at the 3-way fork, go straight. (~0.5miles)
  7. Right at fork (~50 yards)
  8. Right on dirt road (~1 mile).  Pay attention to trail entrance behind you so you’ll find it coming back.
  9. Straight returning onto trial when road veers right (~ ¼ mile)
  10. Trail merges with the CCT just south of the lighted soccer fields in Lake Fairfax Park.  (~ ½ mile). 
  11. Stay on CCT until Carpers Farm Way, across Rte. 7 from Colvin Run Mill.  (Water will be available there on most days)
  12. This is  a little less than 5 miles and the turn-around point for the 10-mile option.
  13. For 12-miles, cross Rte. 7, turn right and  follow the trail until reaching Leigh Mill Rd.  Turn around there.
  14. Retrace course watching for the following:
    1. After the lighted soccer fields, keep right at the fork, where there is a sign about the Fairfax Park trails.
    2. There is a fork shortly after the above fork, keep right.
    3. When you return to the dirt road (see step 8 above), pay attention to the left turn onto the trail
