The over 40-mile-long Cross County Trail (Fairfax CCT) runs through some of the county's most scenic areas, beginning at Great Falls Park on the mighty Potomac River and extending south to the Occoquan River and Laurel Hill, formerly known as Lorton Prison. Here, hikers, joggers, equestrians, strollers, and cyclists can discover a natural wonderland. Springtime finds the woodland floor adorned with carpets of wildflowers including bluebells, cut-leaved toothwort, trout lilies, and harbinger-of-spring. If you're feeling VERY adventurous, the trail is even part of the East Coast Greenway, which stretches from Maine all the way to Key West.
