Washington & Old Dominion Railroad Regional Park in Herndon, Virginia offers peace of mind in the form a long stretch of road for runners, cyclist, skaters, and people who love nature walks.
This park has many features along the way. Walking along this trail is an adventure, you will see kids in baseball practice, golf lessons, mini bridge, birds, flowers, art gallery, library, and what not. My favorite part about this trail is this unique installation, a caboose! This is an attraction for kids to explore and learn about old freight trains. You can see the interiors through the glass but cannot go inside. There is also a train station from the years before. It is a charming and interesting place to explore even if the rails go nowhere.
