The Friends of the Washington and Old Dominion Trail (FOWOD) is a non-profit citizens organization dedicated to the preservation, enhancement and promotion of a unique recreational resource in northern Virginia: the W&OD trail, a 45-mile multi-use rail-trail that is owned and operated by the Northern Virginia Regional Park Authority. We hope you will use this site to learn more about the trail, keep up to date on current events happening on or near the trail, support the efforts of the FOWOD, and share your thoughts and ideas with us.

Please note that the NVRPA maintains its own site, and that this one is wholly distinct from it.
