This is a beautiful and scenic paved trail along the Sugarland Run Valley. The southern terminus of the trail is at the intersection with Washington &Old Dominion trail, between Fairfax County Parkway and Herndon Parkway. The route crosses over the stream in many places, sometimes with bridges, and sometimes with fair-weather concrete pillars. The trail is almost completely forested with lots of wildlife including turtles, foxes, herons and beavers. The trail connects to many subdivisions via short side trails and also intersects with a similar trail, Folly Lick Trail, about 3 miles north of the W&OD intersection.
