Summer is coming in hot and we're excited to see lots of visitors on the Dahlgren Trail! We want to make the trail as accessible, beautiful, and enjoyable as it can possibly be – and we’re constantly working to achieve that goal.
We have several projects that are in active motion. The major one is improving the parking area located on Indiantown Road. We plan to bring in several loads of gravel to improve the slope and drainage of the area. The entrance to the parking area will be paved, providing a smoother entrance and exit. The second project in the works is expanding a trail section just to the east of Comorn Road. This will involve some grading and gravel application, as well as possibly paving the entrance/exit ramp. And finally, we’re pursuing a small parking lot where the trail crosses Owens Drive. This would be a small graveled lot which should hold about ten cars. We look forward to updating you about these improvements. We welcome your feedback anytime, via this form.
We were recently honored to receive a grant from Keep Virginia Beautiful! As part of their "Green Grants" program, we will use this funding to improve Dahlgren Trail accessibility, specifically the section of the trail around mile 2, which often becomes muddy and impassable after heavy rains. Learn more about this project, here.
With summer rain, wind, and rapid growth of the plants and tress on the trail, you may see some tall grass, a leaning tree, or other trail maintenance issues. Our trail maintenance team is ready to help! Please let us know if you have suggestions or questions. Click here to contact us! Want to be part of the maintenance crew? Ask us about that too!
