The Warrenton Branch Greenway is a paved pedestrian and bike trail used and loved by Fauquier County residents for decades. Earlier this fall, a new extension opened to nearly double the Greenway’s length to 2.2 miles!
It now connects Old Town Warrenton to the Fauquier Education Farm – allowing folks to move between the vibrant downtown and Fauquier’s beautiful rural area without needing to get in their cars. The new extension also links up with the Stafford Connector trail, which leads to Lord Fairfax Community College.
PEC was excited to play a role in the funding of the extension. After Fauquier County obtained the right-of-way, we raised $30,000 to help complete the construction.
This expansion will promote outdoor recreation, bridge the connection between urban and rural environments, and create another way to access learning and volunteering opportunities at the Fauquier Education Farm.
