Now’s the time to get outdoors. The crisp fall days beckon you to get on the trails, breathe in our fresh Washington air, and enjoy time in nature. Just out your backdoor at McCormick are miles of peaceful trails for you to slowly meander, or to get your heart rate up and get a good hike or jog in. It’s your choice as McCormick offers both.
McCormick’s trail system is the perfect place to walk your dog, take the kids or grandkids exploring, or enjoy a nice evening walk with your spouse. Here are a few ideas to utilize our beautiful trails!
Here is a McCormick trail map, save it and print it for your explorations! If you haven’t explored McCormick’s trails yet, start with the Beaver Dam trail, accessible just off the entrance to McCormick from Old Clifton Road on McCormick Woods Drive. Big Pond Trail is also a favorite and gives you a great loop to explore. You’ll probably bump into a neighbor or two, but even more likely a duck, goose, or our resident deer.
Just across Old Clifton Rd from McCormick is the brand new McCormick Village Park. This 65-acre park, offers a mile loop trail, fenced dog park, playground, picnic shelters, splash pad for the warmer months, and restrooms. McCormick Woods residents are especially excited for the fantastic McCormick Village Park dog park, being so close to home!
If you’d rather play pickleball, tennis, or shoot some hoops, Mary McCormick Park at McCormick is your place to be. Mary McCormick Park also has a playground and parking, though walking or biking to the park from home is convenient on our paved sidewalks and miles of trails.
Whatever your outdoor activity is this fall, be sure to tag us on your social media posts @liveatmccormick so we can enjoy, too! Happy hunting!
