Walking trails/sidewalks in Stafford?

I see lots of cars when I stop-(get stuck in traffic) in Stafford. Any places to walk/hike? I see 1 mention a trail (Governors Island).

Greetings lv2travelVirginia,

Stafford Parks website;


Belmont-Berry Farm Trail


Link below for Abel Reservoir which lists a walking track/ trail, however, it does not list the length of the track/ walk.

Kellogg Mill Road Stafford, VA 22554

Walking Track/Trails


""" I see 1 mention a trail (Governors Island)."'"

link below for Government Island which posts a 1.6 mile loop trail.


Your other option is head to Fredericksburg which has a number of great walks / hikes.


Motts Run Reservoir is fantastic!

I hope this info helps.

Prince William Forest Park, near Quantico, I think is a National Park, of several square miles, with hiking trails.

If you have access to nearby Quantico Marine Base there is a good trail system. I recently walked the Northbank Trail along the scenic creek and a trail with a great name, Old Butts Trail, wooded and hilly with intersecting loop called Woodpecker. Both trailheads are close to the Crossroads Inn, Chapel, and Marsh Center on Russell Rd. Here is an article with additional information:


Hope this helps
