There are 3 different walks to choose from involving Lake Fairfax Park. One walk starts at the intersection of the Washington and Old Dominion Trail with Michael Faraday Ct. A second walk starts within the Park and goes to Colvin Run Mill. The third walk circles Lake Fairfax leaving the park and utilizing some of the Reston pathway system. Park campers wishing to walk to a nearby shopping center (Tall Oaks) may wish to try this walk

The route from the W&OD Trail to Lake Fairfax is utilized by mountain bikers as part of a connection to Difficult Run. The bikers leave the W&OD route at point 17 on that map and continue to Colvin Run Mill starting at Point 1 on that route map. They join the Fairfax County Connector Trail near Colvin Run Mill where Colvin Run meets with Difficult Run. A trail guide to the section of the Fairfax County Connector Trail along Difficult Run between Colvin Run Mill and Leigh Mill Road will be published on this site in the future.
