First Phase of Potomac Shores Trail System Open to Hikers

PRINCE WILLIAM COUNTY, VA., (Sept. 1, 2015) — The Potomac Shores community in Prince William County, Virginia, recently completed work on the initial five miles of a new trail system in the northern part of the property near where the first residential neighborhoods are being constructed and occupied. The trails are natural ones in that they generally follow the existing contours of the terrain throughout the property; most of the trail system is unpaved as it is intended to blend with the natural beauty of the land.

The trails vary in length but are all interconnected to create a linked system, and each is named after a prominent feature or point of interest that hikers will pass on that particular trek. The five new trails and their respective lengths include: Powells Creek Trail, 2.4 miles; Bland’s Farm Trail, 0.4 mile; Heritage Ridge Trail, 0.5 mile; North Pond Trail, 0.6 mile; and Street Trail, 1.0 mile, so named because it follows Potomac River Boulevard. Our company has created a fold-out color map of the system so residents can follow the trails and look for the wildlife and fauna found throughout the area.
On Sunday, August 23, Potomac Shores hosted a “Farewell to Summer” event with nearly 200 people in attendance. Visitors learned about the development progress at Potomac Shores and several took property tours via golf carts. The tours featured the model homes, the newly established trailheads and the Golf Clubhouse. Plenty of entertainment was available for children as they enjoyed getting their faces painted and interacting with a talented balloon artist who created air-filled designs. Potomac Shores’ Tidewater Grill provided the food for the event.
