The Town of Leesburg will celebrate the a new bike route with a dedication ceremony Saturday morning.
Mayor Kelly Burk will officiate a dedication ceremony at 9 a.m. at Fox Ridge Park. Two newly-designated segments of the network—the Blue and Green Trails—are on shared-use paths, marked by distinctive trail signs at intervals along each route.
The Blue Trail extends 5.5 miles, beginning at the W&OD Trail in Tuscarora Creek Park and ending at the cul-de-sac on Ball’s Bluff Road NE near the entrance to Ball’s Bluff Regional Park. The Green Trail runs for 2.6 miles, beginning at the W&OD Trail near Fox Ridge Park and ending at the intersection of Battlefield Parkway and North King Street. Cyclists can continue north on shared-use paths to Frances Hazel Reid Elementary School, Smart’s Mill Middle School and Tuscarora High School from the northern end of the Green Trail.
The Blue and Green Trails are linked at their southern trailheads by the W&OD Trail. The distance between trailheads on the W&OD Trail is 1.9 miles.
The trail connections were made possible in a joint effort by the town and Bike Loudoun, according to a press release. See a map of the Leesburg Bike Trail Network at leesburgva.gov/biketrail.
