The Occoquan Greenway

The Occoquan Greenway is a public trail system that is planned to connect the County Complex to the Town of Occoquan. Currently, the route is completed and open to the public between the County Complex and Hedges Run Drive in Lake Ridge.

The Department of Parks and Recreation is currently working with community partners to expand the trail and open additional trail segments to the public. 

Project Information and Status

Background Info

Trail planning began in 2004. The completed trail will provide pedestrian/bike connectivity from the County Complex (McCoart) to the Town of Occoquan via natural and paved surface segments. Links to existing bike and pedestrian infrastructure as well as the Potomac Heritage National Scenic Trail and Fairfax Cross County Trail are planned. 

Project Status

The Occoquan Greenway Project is currently 43% complete (4.41 of ~10.31 miles, excluding existing trails providing connectivity through Lake Ridge Park). The first two segments of the Greenway, Segment One and Segment Two, are open to the public between the County Government Center and Hedges Run Drive in Lake Ridge.  

Next Steps

The Board of the Lake Ridge Parks and Recreation Association will vote on the revised trail easement plats for Segments Three and Four on 3/21/17. Following from the LRPRA vote, The Prince William County Board of Supervisors will hold a vote to accept or reject the trail easements.
