A significant amount of trail development and maintenance was accomplished at James Long Park recently.  Park Authority staff partnered with volunteers from the Prince William Trails & Stream Coalition, and the Nokesville Horse Society, to improve existing trails and clear new trails.  Staff and volunteers made several visits to the park to layout and mark the new trail routes, and then clear the pathway.  Existing trails also received attention.  These are multi-purpose trails, intended for hikers, bikers, equestrians and nature watchers.  Some logs were left in the trail path as jumps for equestrians, adding interest and a challenge to the ride (although a cut-out or cleared space is also available for hikers and bikers).   The work resulted in an extensive network of trails in James Long Regional Park.  Click here for a map of the park and its trails.
