Nice place for families to have some outdoor fun with river, woods, and abandoned structures. However, don't expect out of world experience in any of these. This spot looks very... read more

This park is small(ish) but packs a big punch. Great trails and a great overlook across the Potomac River from VA into MD. The trails are great for hiking / trail running. The park itself is awesome for picnics! The park is pet friendly - a great place to take your dog! Also, there are some really cool remnants of... More

There are some wonderful buildings/ruins here to look at along with a gorgeous hike with lots of options for the trails to lead you to overlook the Potomac River. Close by and I would love to visit all of the trail options.

Nice place for families to have some outdoor fun with river, woods, and abandoned structures. However, don't expect out of world experience in any of these. This spot looks very popular among local photographers. You can find many of them with all props taking family portraits.

You enter this site next to the well-preserved ruins of a Loudoun County farm. Each building is well-marked. The grounds are well cared for. I have been there several times and have been virtually alone each time. There is ample parking. No facilities.

Quiet, with a nice walk down to see the water. A couple of historical markers, Very pretty woods, with a main well-kept path and slightly more rustic side paths.

I've been over there couple times - a really nice and not noisy/crowdy place to walk. I'd say it is a little bit wild though nice and really natural. Stay safe - watch where you step - there is a chance to meet snakes - never saw them in person though I know those who did - so a little... More

Love taking my two dogs here for walks through the woods. Nice and shady, which is perfect for hot days. You can take easy trails or opt for more challenging climbs. Nice view of the Potomac River at the overlook.

Red Rock Overlook is a nice spot to drop by if you have an hour or so to kill, but not really an attraction beyond that. It's a very short walk through the woods (from the parking lot, down to the water). Its pretty, particularly at sunset, but difficult to get photos as the sunsets through the trees behind you,...

This park has some building ruins of a farm from the late 1800's. It doesn't take long to see the carriage house, granary and well house. There are two trails to the Potomac River overlook (0.5 and 0.9 miles) which are use by a lot of joggers/runners. A very pleasant place in nice weather. Trails are muddy after rainfall.

I started my days adventure here and have to say I had a very good time. There were not a lot of people on the hiking trail, save a runner and a family with two small children and a dog. The historic builds at the parking area are very nice and give you a sense of the area you are... More
