Locust Shade

Locust Shade is a small county park with diverse terrain situated along Prince William County’s Southern portion of the Potomac Heritage Trail Corridor. With county approval, MORE recently completed the build of an advanced 1.2 mile trail extension. In addition, MORE volunteers are in the process of building and finishing a 1.1 mile beginner trails that will replace multiple fall line sections of trail.

12/1 - The new intermediate trail alignment has been flagged, blown and bucked (down trees cleared from the corridor) and is walkable and rideable. Please use caution since we still have to build two bridges and one short elevated boardwalk where the corridor crosses various creeks.

Locust Shade will provide an anchor for the Potomac Heritage Trail and provide connectivity to other nearby popular trail systems, including those aboard Marine Corps Base Quantico (Quantico MTB Club) and the trails in Prince William Forest Park (NPS).

Funding will provide necessary materials for multiple bridges and for the necessary expertise to build the desired trail system, please use the Donate Now Form on this page to help us make these trails become a reality.
