Cyclists on the multiuse W&OD Trail in Leesburg.
Built on the roadbed of the former Washington & Old Dominion Railroad, the multiuse W&OD Trail runs 45 miles from Leesburg to Purcellville. The 100-foot-wide trail is named after the railroad that used the tracks for more than 100 years. Mile markers along the trail provide information about the park’s features and history.
Bicycle Outfitters stocks all that cyclists will need. Popular stopovers include Fire Works Pizza near the trail in Market Station and Mom’s Apple Pie, a family-owned pie store. Bikers who want to stay an extra day often choose the Norris House Inn near W&OD mile marker 34.5 or the Leesburg Colonial Inn in the same vicinity, which offers bike storage.
