    Default Trail Closure at Lake Accotink Park

    The Fairfax County Park Authority will be constructing a pedestrian bridge across Accotink Creek below the dam and spillway beginning June 2022 and ending in the spring of 2023. Trail users will not be able to circumnavigate the Lake Accotink loop trail due to construction.

    Was caught by surprise with this while running on Sunday. Note that if you're the kind of person who does this kind of thing, it's easy enough to get around on foot. In fact, people were fishing from the old low-water bridge. Would not be as easy with a bike.

    Making pedestrian access for this would have been difficult, but for those who live nearby and use it often, this would doubtless be a pain.

    Here's an update on the Lake Accotink trail work. The picture was taken Sep. 1.
    Looks like crews have been busy removing the trail surface, fair weather crossing and culverts. It's hard to see clearly what work is being done.
