The Arlington Airport Trail is a combination of gravel and paved dedicated pedestrian trails running the perimeter of Arlington airport with a several additional routes in the forest and field areas on the southwest corner. Dogs are allowed on leash and there are scoop kiosks available along the trail. 

Most major trail junctions here are well marked with signage, so don't miss the historical interpretive signage explaining Arlington airport's history and significant role in training World War Two Pacific theater carrier pilots.  

The western side is more wooded while the eastern side is more industrial.  Do the whole loop or just the part that most interests you.
