    @Tania, let us know how the CCT trail (Purple Trail) was between W&OD and Twin Branches (wet/dry). I'd like to ride it tomorrow up to LFX if it hasn't started raining, yet, so that might be a good indication on how that'll go.

    I was able to get a ride out there to pick up my car (so that I can attend NICA practice this afternoon). Sorry! It does sound fun and the CCT route is likely the one I'll use the next time my car needs service.

    I'm told Glade is a good road for bikes too.

    Glade is a wonderful road, yes.

    I've ridden Lawyers. It isn't great to the east, but I rode it a couple times when the trail was snowed under and it didn't feel unsafe.

    Stuart Mill is an alternative to Lawyers, but I don't think it's a better option. Hunter Station to Twin Branches to Glade is a great way to get to FFX County Pkwy.

    The Fairfax County Pkwy trail is terrible, especially the intersections, but ultimately that is how I also go to Chantilly (I think also via Franklin Farm).

    It's just a "make sure you know what you're getting into".
