One of the best things about the location of our new house is the fact that it’s walking distance to a park – and not just any ol’ park, but Lake Accotink Park
– which is almost 500 acres including a 55 acre lake! And one of the trails through it is the Cross County Trail
, which (you’re going to be shocked at this) is a trail that spans across the whole county. For my marathon runner hubby, it’ll be great to have access to miles and miles of trails that he can run to straight from the front door. I don’t need quite so many miles, but I’m super excited to have a such a close place to go for a hike, take out the kayaks, go for a (slow & short) run, or just generally escape to nature.
