Description:
The Dahlgren Railroad Heritage Trail (DRHT) is a trail that follows an old railroad bed in King George County, Virginia.Nazarov, Amy Rogers. "David Brickley: Determined Trail Builder". Rails to Trails, Fall 2006: 14-15.

The railroad line was built by the federal government during World War II to serve a United States Navy base in Dahlgren; the line was later sold to the Richmond, Fredericksburg and Potomac Railroad and subsequently CSX Transportation before being abandoned.2006-07-14. (editorial). The Free Lance-Star, Fredericksburg, VA.

The DRHT is a trail from the western edge of King George County to the Naval Surface Warfare Center, Dahlgren Division. Intended for use as a public "Rails-to-Trails" project, the trail winds through rural King George and accommodates non-motorized, recreational users including hikers, bikers, horseback riders, and runners. The Friends of the DRHT hope to eventually make the trail a public resource for King George County, and to connect it to similar trails in Fredericksburg, Virginia. A projected future bike trail across an expansion to the Governor Nice bridge would provide a connection to trails in Maryland.

The trail opened with a ribbon-cutting ceremony on June 6, 2006. The trail is currently private, and a permit is required to use it. A permit application can be obtained from the DRHT website.
