Where are some good places to take a 3 and 6 year old sledding in Fairfax County?

Where specifically? Preferably bigger than the 10 footer that leads to your private entrance to your mom's walk-out basement.

I honestly can't think of any good sledding hills but I'm sure they're out there.

Sledding is an extremely dangerous activity. Do you want your kids to end up slobbering zombies?

Nova college has the BEST sled hills in the area. You will not be disappoint if you sled there.

Annandale on 236/wakefield chapel. The hills by the pond are the best. You seriously have to try it. No better hills in the Fairfax county.

Not in Fairfax, but the GW Masonic Memorial in Alexandria is pretty good.

Enjoy the winter wonderland of the best local hills for a sleigh ride.

Mt. Reston
A cherished favorite amongst Reston and Herndon residents, this broad and expansive hill beside the Unitarian Church provides enough open space for people of all ages
to glide down the packed-in snow at thrilling speeds. 1625 Wiehle Ave., Reston.

The Big Hill at Wolftrap
A quintessential sledding destination, this big ol’ hill will accommodate an army of sleigh-riders. Expect a smooth, long ride down the slope, which is not to steep and makes for a great time for the entire family. 1551 Trap Road, Vienna.

Suicide Hill
Do not take the name lightly. This short-but-steep slope will have you jetted off into high speeds—into a condo resting at the bottom of the hill if you’re not careful. Only true thrill seekers should take on this gnarly hill—and make sure to be riding on a sled that is very, very sturdy. Martha Custis Drive and Preston Road, Alexandria

Westgate Park
While not as perilous as Suicide Hill, this hill is not a good idea for beginners. Popular and packed, it’s a great destination for more seasoned sledding families to go and enjoy some great powder. 7550 Magarity Road, McLean.

Stone House
Wintry sledding locales don’t get much cooler than a Civil War monument. Head over the Stone House in Manassas Battlefield Park and you’ll find a hill between 300-400 feet of smooth riding. Speeding down the snow with cannons overlooking on the precipice of the hill is an exciting way to spend your winter holiday. Intersection of Sudley Road and Lee Highway.

I agree with these 2.

The Reston hill is best if they mowed hill earlier. But we have lots of good times there. Parking at top of hill. Creek at bottom, be careful or you will go in when it gets icy.

Kingstowne area has the best sledding hills around by far. Some are far to long and steep for small children but there are some less challenging hills in the area for the kiddos.

+1 on the Triple Hills at Orange Hunt. Also close by, the dam at Huntsman Lake is great...

Huntsman lake is great, lots of terrain for all ages, some good, long steeps and shorter runs for the littel kids. Parking can be a bitch.

Columbia Elementary school has an insane hill behind the school near the kiddy playground. If you look closely at the fence, you'll see a dent, which I made when sledding down the hill.

We went sledding at the Stone House in Manassas last week. There were a lot of people there and the snow was not that great. A bit thin and several muddy spots. There were many more people just across Rt 29. The snow was better there and it was much better than behind the Stone House.

Now I hear that you can get a ticket for sledding there. Is that just at the Stone House side, or anywhere in Manassas Battlefield Park?

Go to Hannah's Hill at intersection of Vale and Hunter Mill road. S++w the houses there. Just set up a 55g can with wood inside and some diesel and torch the sucker. Hop on yer sled and f++k the shrubbery.

I am surprised as I though the Battlefield cracked down on that over the years. I looked at their Facebook page and they have a post with pictures fromthe weekend essentially promoting it with photos of people on the hill behind the Stome House, which was where I used to go years ago. You would see people up there with car hoods (it is PWC). The Facebook post in no way mentioned anything about not going there.
