Great hiking experience for all ages

We usually hike Red Rocks at least once a year. It has several historic buildings onsite and a nice hike with a view of the Potomac. You can also hike down to the Potomac but it... read more

Very rustic, but if you want to hike in the woods, this is the place. Not well travelled, so you can have most of the place to yourselves. Some interesting historical ruins next to the parking lot with some informational plaques.

A pleasant half-mile hike on the main trail from the parking area to the scenic overlook. Not really remote, as you can see a nearby electrical substation. All of the fallen trees noted in earlier reviews have been cleared. (This is nature, so trees can fall any time, but as of yesterday it was looking good.) The overlook is at... More

We usually hike Red Rocks at least once a year. It has several historic buildings onsite and a nice hike with a view of the Potomac. You can also hike down to the Potomac but it is a steep hike down and up. When you are at the riverbank, there is no where to go but back the way you... More

Informational plaques explaining the history of the land. A nice nature walk, but the signs were misleading. Very close to an electrical facility and residential area.

What a fantastic hidden gem. Really nice hiking and beautiful river views! Great for a quick hike or a oicnic with family or friends.

This park draws your attention when you see the remnants of old stone buildings next to the road. Great place for photos, the stone walls have lots of character. Once in the park, you can take 2 trails through the woods that lead you to a bluff high above the Potomac River. It's is usually not very busy here, dogs... More

This is a short hike but offers a great overlook. It's normally not too crowded & dog friendly. When I lived in the area I liked to frequent here especially when the seasons were changing.

What a delightful little park! The parking lot is surrounded by old buildings that are neat to explore (and make great backgrounds for pictures). The walking paths circle the park and lead to a wonderful overlook (at least the path I was on). The view at the overlook was fantastic. The path at one or two places was a bit... More

We really love the great outdoors and discovery of our own back yard in what Loudoun has to offer. We are a growing community full of smiling people. And when you add your dogs to the picture it's even more fun. Great place for a walk.

To back up the last post, my family and I did the entire white trail hike yesterday and the downed trees were not a problem. My eight year old had no problem stepping over any logs and they added to the experience as fun obstacles to jump over. And it was no problem for me with my 30-pound three year... More
