The 1 mile trail is a moderate walk through the woods (not a paved trail), is a bit hilly, and very peaceful. Just make sure to follow the blue dots on the trees, otherwise you'll end up at the old landfill! The trail head is a little hard to find, but it is just off the entrance road on the left near one of the pavilions.

My kids and I did this trail on our bikes on a Thursday mornings. A nice ride, nothing too exciting, although the Occoquan River was nice to look at.
