Great Falls Park Trail Closure- Difficult Run Trail at Rt. 193 Bridge to Fairfax Co. Cross County Trail, Difficult Run

The trail connection between the Great Falls Park Difficult Run Trail and the Fairfax County Cross County Trail (CCT) is closed at the junction under the Georgetown Pike bridge (Rt. 193) due to a partial collapse of an old pedestrian walkway attached to the Rt. 193 bridge.
Due to this closure, there are no connecting trails from Great Falls Park to the CCT Fairfax County Difficult Run parking area. The rest of the trail network can be accessed using the Great Falls Park main entrance. Visitors should not use this trail or walk under the bridge area.
The National Park Service is working with our regional partners to remove debris and stabilize the area. Updates will be posted when we have additional information.
