Did you know our Mason sidewalks and walkways are now multi -use fitness trails? Put them to use for your own fitness needs! Explore them at your own pace for a leisurely stroll, or use them to get a quick run in after class! There are also a few stopping points with bike racks throughout the trail for users who want to pause their ride and explore the area on foot. Our wellness survey results revealed that walking, running, and biking are the primary physical activities of choice for many of our students and surrounding community members.
There are 2 designated trails on campus:
- Yellow Birch Trail – 1.6 mile walking/running trail on the sidewalks around Patriot Circle
- Red Dogwood Trail – 1.3 mile multi-purpose trail along Campus Drive
Both of these trails are signed at major intersections, please remember to always use caution when crossing intersecting roadways while using these trails.
The City of Fairfax and Fairfax County also maintain signed trails and bike lanes that integrate with our Mason Trails.
Additional information on those trails and the Mason Trails can be found at the following link.
