The Prince William County Park Authority with the assistance of the Prince William Trails and Streams Coalition (www.pwtsc.org ) has developed a new Trailhead to the Occoquan River below the Lake Jackson Dam. This new trail will provide easier access to the River for canoeists, kayakers, and fishermen.A ribbon cutting ceremony is planned for 29 October at 10 AM. The Trailhead opening was sped up by services and materials donated by Dominion Power, Branscome Paving and Olde Towne Landscaping. The nearest take-out point for canoeists/kayakers will be the Bull Run Marina which is about 9.5 miles downstream or about a 5.5 hour paddle. Paddlers should plan on dropping off their equipment at the Occoquan River Trailhead area and take their vehicles to the Bull Run Marina Parking Lot. Directions to the Bull Run Marina from the Occoquan River Trailhead can be found below. A second take-out point for only 29 October will be the Riverview Estates HOA take-out site which is about 5.5 miles downstream and will be available by special permission of the HOA. Directions to that site are also below.A one-time shuttle service to move paddlers from the Bull Run Marina Parking Lot and the Riverview Estates HOA site back to the Occoquan River Trailhead is being planned for that day to ease traffic congestion.Canoeists and Kayakers are requested to register for this opening event by calling Ed Dandar, PWTSC project officer at 703-791-6158 or blueways@pwtsc.org.
