The Bluemont Junction Trail is a 1.3-mile (2.1 km) rail-trail in Arlington County, Virginia that the Arlington County government constructed along a former branch of the defunct Washington and Old Dominion Railroad. The trail travels through Bluemont Junction Park,[1] connecting Ballston with the Washington & Old Dominion Railroad Trail at Bluemont Junction near Bluemont Park.[2][3] In Ballston, the trail connects to the Custis Trail and also meets on-street bike lanes that travel to Rosslyn and Washington, D.C., via Fairfax Drive and Clarendon and Wilson Boulevards.[4]

The trail is part of a route to Georgetown and downtown Washington, D.C. It serves as an alternative to a portion of the more hilly Custis Trail.
