This is also called the White Trail (white blazes). Follow directions to Algonkian Regional Park/Volcano Island Waterpark in Sterling, VA. There is only one entrance/exit to the park. Once inside Algonkian Park, follow the signs to Volcano Island Waterpark, but do not park at the waterpark. Instead, park in the lot adjacent to Park Chalet Place, nearest the river and cabins.
Zooming in on the blue dot on the map on this webpage shows where to park in the parking lot along Park Chalet Place. The trail head is at the west end of the parking lot and it is marked. There is also another access point to the White Trail at the west end of Park Chalet Place, which is a nice paved walk along the river and cabins. The White Trail is identified on the map as a dotted line.
