Description: E:\Planning Dept. Pics\Powells Landing 10-11\DSCN1140.jpgBroad Run Trail

The Broad Run Scenic Trail is planned to connect communities along the Broad Run and Linton Hall Rd. area via a pedestrian and bicycle trail that parallels the stream on one or both sides.  The first phase of development of the trail system is to create a continuous path between Nokesville Road (Rt. 28) and Rollins Ford Park, which lies immediately south of Lake Manassas.  Currently, approximately three and a half miles, not including spurs, out of the seven miles of trail anticipated with the first phase has been constructed.  Additional sections of trail are planned to be completed in the near future.

The second phase of the Broad Run Trail System is planned to extend along the stream south of Nokesville Road (Rt. 28) and provide further connections to historic and natural resources in the County including Bristow Battlefield, Brentsville Historic Courthouse and Doves Landing Park

Current and Recent Projects

  • Broad Run Bridge  -  In the Summer of 2014, PWC Parks and Recreation constructed a 120’ long pedestrian bridge across the Broad Run which links existing trail segments and will allow the trail system to be further developed north along the stream towards Lake Manassas.
  • Rocky Branch Bridge – Completed in the Spring of 2014, the Rocky Branch Bridge is located in the same vicinity as the Broad Run Bridge and allows for trail access from the parking lot at Hunting Cove Place.
    • Broad Run & Rocky Branch Bridge Map

Completed Bridges – In the summer of 2012, Parks installed two fiberglass bridges on the Broad Run.  Both bridges are located on the trail behind Victory Elementary School and provide users safe access to existing trail segments as well as new access to park lands along the Broad Run.
