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

I felt I ought to post this review after the recent negative review from the travellers who expressed shock at the state of the park due to fallen trees. I visited today, and walked the trails and experienced no particular difficulty despite heavy rain and thunderstorms over the past two days. As an experienced hiker, I found the state of... More

My wife and I were shocked at the condition of this park. From the signs, it was renovated in 1983, but it appears that it hasn't been touched since. We stopped counting at 100 the number of downed trees, including many blocking the walking paths. We've never seen such complete neglect of a wonderful nature walk. The situation has now... More

This small park has several miles of hiking within its wooded grounds. Several of the trails bring you down to the Potomac and there is a great overook perched high above ther river as well as a trail that runs at river level. All trails are family friendly and have only minor hills to contend with. It is very well... More

I just had knee surgery so I was nervous to go on the trail, but I found it fairly level with the most hazardous thing being above ground roots once in awhile. It's a lovely trail with a nice bench at the end for sitting and looking at the beautiful Potomac River. The trees were beautiful with fall colors. The... More

This place has a nice short trail loop that goes towards the Potomac River - nice views of the river from the overlook. You can hike down to the river if you want by following the trail. Good short hike.
