Trails and Parks
McLean residents enjoy easy access to natural beauty and recreation both within the community and beyond. A growing network of trails for walkers and cyclists link McLean’s neighborhoods to historic homes, fishing ponds woods and parks, such as the planned 10-acre city of Belmont park and McLean Point, a waterfront jewel with hundreds of feet of shoreline. Additionally, special mountain biking trails will be built adjacent to the Overlake neighborhood for younger adventurers.
Visitors already can use park at our trailhead on South New Hope Road to hike the magnificent Seven Oaks Preserve Trail. The 2.8-mile shoreline path winds among ancient oaks and tulip poplars in the 78-acre preserve beside Daniel Stowe Botanical Garden.
