Today I shall be witty, charming, and elegant...or just say 'um' a lot and trip over things.
Fall is here! We’re staying local this year, and doing “fall stuff.” What does that mean? Two shiggy-filled trails, entry to a fall festival, a reserved space in the pavilion to hang out and grab refreshments, boxed dinner, and then an evening bonfire just for us with goodies. The fall fest includes: a hay ride, corn maze, and tons more. We can even get lost in the corn maze after dark! Oh, and don’t forget there’s a cool gimme!
The event is family friendly, but we do have to share the farm with muggles.

Metro Accessibility: Yes-ish. Wiehle-Reston East then a 1.3 mile walk

Shiggy Rating - 1 for all trails
Dog Friendly: Yes!
Stroller Friendly: No. But masochists like Parent's Weakend would probably consider this Stroller-able with an all-terrain buggy with good suspension. Primarily dirt paths with roots and rocks and occasional creek crossings, fairly technical but no obstacles. Recommend backpack for most of you sane people. Great trail for backpack.
