Bull Run Regional Park

Description

Bull Run Regional Park is the northernmost regional park along Bull Run and the Occoquan Reservoir. The park offers the final trailhead for the Occoquan-Bull Run Trail, a trail that totals 17.5 miles. As with the other Northern Virginia Regional Park Authority parks, Bull Run is a multi-use facility that caters to the broadest selection of outdoor recreationists. Opportunities for wildlife viewing are focused upon the Occoquan-Bull Run Trail. A mile or two hike along this trail can offer some rewarding wildlife sightings. A variety of woodland songbird species and woodpeckers may be observed, such as pileated woodpeckers, which are common here, and their “kaak-kaak-kaak” calls ring through the forests from first light.
