Eleven miles of hiking trails, two fishing ponds, picnic pavilions, a National Register listed Historic District, and an outstanding Sportsplex provide opportunities for both passive and active recreation. The Vestal’s Gap Visitor Center, home to the Discovery Room and live-animal displays, is a great place to find information about the park. Woodlands, wildflower meadows, wetlands, and ponds provide peaceful surroundings for hikes, picnics, bird watching, photography, etc. Vestal’s Gap Road and the Lanesville Historic District take you back in time as you walk the Native American trail and visit the 1779 Lanesville Ordinary & Post Office. Both local leagues and national tournaments enjoy playing baseball, softball, football, soccer, and lacrosse on nine well-groomed and irrigated fields in the Sportsplex. Nature, history, and sports classes, programs, and camps, along with scout programs, school field trips, birthday parties, and special events help to share this multi-faceted park with guests of all ages.

Claude Moore Park encompasses 357 acres of mature forests, young woodlands, wetlands, ponds, and meadows in eastern Loudoun County. The park provides a unique green space nestled next to the Sterling Park neighborhood and just a mile from the Dulles Town Center Mall and several other shopping and restaurant areas. The park is approximately a mile south of the Route 7/Cascades Parkway interchange and a mile and a half east of the Route 28/Church Road interchange (using Church Road to Cascades Parkway). Leave the highways behind as you enter the park along wooded park lanes – perhaps you’ll spot a deer, wild turkey, box turtle, or other wildlife that make their homes in the Claude Moore Park habitats.
