Gabe Trail Hiker

Algonkian Regional Park boasts a variety of trails within the park, including accessible, paved trails, hiking trails, and the "Dr. Ira Gabrielson” trail, where horses are welcome.The official start to the Ira Gabrielson Trail can be found near the middle of the park itself, just beyond the open picnic shelter area before the park’s Riverfront Cottages. 

Hiking here is mostly flat on a blazed and well-used footpath. The Ira Garbrielson Trail is officially a part of the Potomac Heritage Scenic Trail. Users can hike the Gabrielson Trail into other Regional Parks, including neighboring Seneca Regional Park as well as Ball's Bluff Battlefield.
