Plans

Fauquier County Connections Plan (Countywide Greenway/Trails Plan)

Fauquier-Warrenton Destinations Plan

Woods at Warrenton – 55 acres of property along Cedar Run are being deeded to the County as a proffer. The property contains constructed wetlands and will be used for a portion of the proposed loop trail around Warrenton. This portion will connect White’s Mill to Warrenton Chase. In the future it will have a parking area and serve as the trail head for both parks. Nature trails are also planned for the future to offer environmental education opportunities for this unique stream valley park. A TEA grant is being used to initiate planning for this portion of the trail.

The Lord Fairfax Connector Trail will eventually connect the Warrenton Branch Greenway and the Community College. Starting at the college lower parking area, approximately one third of a mile of trail has been installed. A natural surface trail is being installed to connect to the LFCC trail to Meetze Road and the future extension of the Warrenton Branch Greenway. Efforts and plans are in the works to acquire and develop portions of the Warrenton Branch that will add to this very popular trail.

These trails will be part of the Fauquier County Connection Plan that was approved by the Fauquier County Board of Supervisors on November 15, 2007. If you are interested in the trail system being established in Fauquier County and would like to donate your time, property or money toward the trail projects, please contact the Fauquier County Parks and Recreation Department 320 Hospital Hill, Suite 6 Warrenton, Va. 20186. Phone 540-347-6848.

Pierce Elementary School Connector Trail
VDOT has granted $277,000 to Fauquier County Parks and Recreation towards a multi-use paved trail that will connect M.M. Pierce Elementary School to neighboring residential developments in Remington. The trail will be roughly 850 feet long and 10 feet wide.
In March 2013, the Fauquier County Board of Supervisors approved the grant for the Pierce trail and plans for construction are moving forward. Press Release:$10,000 Grant Ensures M.M. Pierce Elementary School Trail Project.

Cedar Lee Middle School Safe Routes to School Grant
The County recently submitted a grant request for the Safe Routes to School Program for Cedar Lee Middle School (CLMS) to implement biker/walker safety measures. This project will provide safe, off-road access to CLMS for students living in multiple subdivisions near the school. This project will remove barriers for disabled children and provide off-road community connections to school, library, and stores. Parents using these connectors with children will have increased level of comfort in letting children walk/bike to school.

The plans include safe off-road connector trails along Schoolhouse Rd and CLMS from area neighborhoods. Installation of school zone/speed limit/stop signs and crosswalks/signs at intersections and parking lot entrances (alerting motorists of the changes and the increased pedestrian traffic) will also be implemented. Paved paths will be constructed from Waverly Station Condos to Schoolhouse Road, and from Edgewood East/Fox Meade/Crestwood Knolls subdivisions to CLMS. Sidewalks will be constructed, repaired, or extended where gaps exist and ramps will be rebuilt on each side of the condos at Torrie Way/Schoolhouse Road to conform to ADA standards. A fenced path by the railroad tracks & underpass connecting Bealeton Estates/Bealeton Station/Cedar Brook Subdivison will be constructed. Bike racks are to be installed at CLMS.

Management

The Department is receiving numerous concerns about dog droppings along trails. There is a County ordinance that requires droppings to be picked up. Containers for this purpose are provided by the department at most trail heads. Please help keep the trails clean.
