If you love hiking or jogging on outdoor trails, Gateway Regional Park should be the number one park on your list in the Fairfax area. This large park is at the center of Fairfax County’s complex network of trails, which combines paved trails with on-road bike routes. The park acts like a rest stop for adventurers on a number of different trails and offers a place to sit, a small pavilion for shelter and a water fountain for thirsty hikers.
Just a short trip from Regent’s Park, the park is the meeting point of the City of Fairfax’s trail system, the Accotink Creek Trail and the Connector Trail, so it offers a number of different trail options for those who want to begin their trek from the park. There is also a large trail map that hikers can use to complete their journeys.
Gateway Regional Park is open from dawn to dusk every day of the week.
