North Loop trail- Ellanor C. Lawrence Park in Chantilly, VA
Length: 1.4 miles
Located in western Fairfax County, Ellanor C. Lawrence Park was established to preserve large areas of open space, protect natural and cultural features and provide a wide variety of recreational opportunities for the public.
Ellanor C. Lawrence Park is located in the Piedmont region nestled between the Blue Ridge Mountains and the coastal plain of Northern Virginia. Situated in the Culpeper Basin, the park is characterized by Triassic red bed soils in the western and central portions and thermally metamorphosed sandstone in the east. The elevation of the park is between 225 and 370 feet above sea level. The landscape is relatively flat except for the steep slopes associated with the stream valleys.
The long history of interaction between the land and its people has affected the ecosystems in the park. Ecosystems consist of upland and bottomland forest, streams, meadows and a pond.
