It's quite rocky for the first 15 mins. Hard to do unless your ankles are strong and don't have problems with your feet. Its beautiful location, but uncomfortable hike.

It's a great and challenging trail that'll get your quads and glutes working hard! The only drawback is that there are no branches to the path, so you and everyone else on it are on the same track. Go early in the morning to have it more to yourself. After 9am, plan on sharing heavily. Overall a great trail though, and your legs will thank you for the good workout!…

We enjoyed a wonderful fall hike along Bull Run. We parked at Hemlock Overlook Regional Park in Clifton and took the yellow blaze trail. It's a beautiful walk through the woods down to Bull Run (stream), then followed the blue trail along the water. We turned off the blue trail to loop back along the yellow blazes to the trailhead. It's was a couple of miles with beautiful fall trees and a lovely walk along the water. We did the hike with our three children, and it was not strenuous. At the end of the hike, we walked over to Paradise Springs Winery, where we enjoyed a picnic lunch and a lovely bottle of wine. A thoroughly enjoyable afternoon!…

Great place to visit. Excellent walking paths. The blue bells are delightful. All visitors seem to really enjoy this visit. The rolling trails and twisting waterway is very relaxing.

Stopped at the main parking lot (just down the road from a winery. About a half mile hike down to Bull Run. Slightly taxing, but no big deal. Other attractions include a zip line. Nice relaxing visit.
