Description

The Fort Jackson Passage leads through the woods of this historic military base. Established in 1917, Fort Jackson was created for the training of troops for WWI. The fort is named for Andrew Jackson, seventh president of the US.

The singletrack trail is relatively flat, winding parallel Leesburg Road, but retains the beauty of the woods. The trail surface is sandy, drains well, and can be hiked, run, or ridden when other trails in the area are muddy. Be aware that you may encounter military personnel during some of their daily maneuvers. Bring water and insect repellent during the warm months.
