Site CBR07: Bull Run Regional Park

Description

Bull Run Regional Park is the northernmost regional park along Bull Run and the Occoquan Reservoir. The park offers the final trailhead for the Occoquan-Bull Run Trail. As with the other Northern Virginia Regional Park Authority parks, Bull Run is a multi-use facility that caters to the broadest selection of outdoor recreationists. Opportunities for wildlife viewing are focused upon the Occoquan-Bull Run Trail. Even a mile or two hike along the 17.5 mile trail can offer some rewarding wildlife sightings. Woodland species such as pileated woodpeckers are common here, and their "kaak-kaak-kaak" calls ring through the forests from first light.

Directions

From E.C. Lawrence Park, return to SR 28 South and travel 0.8 miles to US 29. Drive south on US 29 for 3.0 miles to Bull Run Post Office Road and proceed south for 2.0 miles to the entrance to Bull Run Regional Park.
