Fountainhead Regional Park Jun 09, 2015
This hidden away park is nestled along the Occoquan Reservoir in the Virginia suburbs outside Washington, D.C. There is a small boardwalk, fishing pier, boat launch, and snack stand open during the summer. The park offers canoes and kayaks for rent and rangers conduct paddle boat tours on weekends at dawn and dusk.

Fountainhead is mostly known for its crazy mountain bike trails in the woods. Extreme biking isn't my thing, so I stick to the boring old hiking paths. The parking lots can fill up with bikers looking for a thrill on nice days, so drive carefully. There is also an archery range on site if you want to pretend you're Hawkeye.

The reservoir covers a ford that was crossed by the wagon trains for the American and French armies under George Washington and the Comte de Rochembeau on their way to the Battle of Yorktown in 1781 that ended the American Revolution. Nothing quite so dramatic today, just a pleasant park to laze away a summer day.
