In a lesser-known area of the southern Springfield-Beulah Road area, Fairfax County is building a multi-use path from Cinder Bed Road along Long Branch creek to the Franconia-Springfield Metro Station, enhancing a commuting option for many in this part of the county. The proposed trail called the “Cinder Bed Bikeway” will be a two-mile connection with two bridges over the creek, lighting, and neighborhood connections that are part of the county bicycle path network.
According to Mount Vernon Gazette, "The county describes the project as a continuous shared-use path between Newington Road and the Franconia-Springfield Metro Station. A shared-use path will be constructed along the west side of Cinder Bed Road, connect to an existing trail through Fairfax County Park Authority property, and then continue through private property to tie into the trail at the end of Barry Road that leads to the Franconia/Springfield Metro Station. The Cinder Bed Bikeway was discussed at a recent video public information meeting May 10 with county officials, the biking community, and nearby residents."
As per Mount Vernon Gazette, "The path is frequently used by area residents who walk, jog and bike, and some of the area children have even been fishing in the creek. “It’s a great trail, we walk this trail every day,” added Cromer. After the county laid out the plans for the project, there were a series of questions from residents, and the Friends of Accotink Creek were concerned that the trail edges too close to the creek in some parts."
