A popular feature with hikers, bicyclists and outdoor enthusiasts, portions of the Washington & Old Dominion Trail (W&OD), one of suburban Washington, D.C.’s most popular rail-trails, is located near Old Dominion. The W&OD Railroad was built on the eve of the Civil War in 1858. At times both a passenger line and a freight line, the railroad eventually lost out to more efficient modes of transportation and went into disuse in 1968. In 1982 the Northern Virginia Parks Association bought the right-of-way and maintains the trail today with the help of volunteers of the Friends of the W&OD. The heavily used trail is frequented by commuters and recreationists alike, and is a fantastic link between Virginia’s rural and historical past and the nation’s capital.
