Google Map

From southbound I-95, take exit 163 (Lorton). Go left onto Lorton Rd at the end of exit ramp. Go under the 2nd overpass and turn right onto Lorton Market St (Z-pizza is in the shopping center on the left), then go about 1.5 miles to the traffic light at Route 1. Go straight through light (the road name changes to Gunston Rd) and go about 4 miles to the park entrance on left. Let the entrance staff know you are part of the orienteering event so you don't pay admission.
Park in the large lot on the right just beyond the mini-golf course and near Pavilions 1 and 2. Then find the trail head that is clearly identified at the northeastern corner of the parking lot, and walk down it to the shoreline and to the Eagle's Nest pavilion where registration will be. Traffic on the road may be heavy so please use the trail as indicated.
