Easy with some moderate hills
Jun 2020 • Friends
Hiked both the trails in this park twice over early Sunday morning
Not many people around .. Easy hike with some moderate hills. The river view is pretty and fishing is also an option at the bottom of the trail. Quick and easy to get to for a Sunday morning activity. Trails are well marked and easy to navigate.

skip for better places

It's okay to see the old ruins of buildings at the entrance but the noise from the wires and power plant is irritating. The tree roots are growing in the trails so you have to watch your step. much better places around to see and walk and hike.

Great quick hike - always trash on the trail and overlook

We take our boys on hikes, this is an easy quick hike with a nice view. Sadly we always encounter trash. We bring bags and pick up what we can.

Interesting,and diverse walk.
May 2018 • Friends
This is a not overly used area, but does have lots of interesting plants:trees and wildflowers. Some trails are easy and flat-even out to a nice lookout over the Potomac River; some trails are a little harder and can be slipery in wet weather. A good off the beaten track walk, close by to Leesburg.

Wish we had looked at the trail map
Aug 2018 • Couples
We took the trail to the right of the park as you drive in. The path wasn't as wide as i would have liked. I think we were on a trail that not many people use. We did have to climb over 3 fallen trees. There were some sections of the trail where the grass/weeds were right along the path. We did see 2 deer in the woods and a cute small box turtle. We finally made it to a view of the Potomac River which was high up on a cliff. I would have felt more comfortable if I saw others on the hike. After reading some of the reviews here. It sounds like the White trail would have been more to my liking. Algonquin Regional Park isn't far away, and I liked how close we were to the Potomac River on some of their trails.

The path will take about 25-35 minutes to walk, and you can come back a different way. It's got a great view of the Potomac at the end.

Nice spot for a short hike
Aug 2017 • Couples
Great spot for a short (1-2) hike or riverside picnic. Nice trail options that have reasonably easy elevation changes. The Potomac views are nice, parking is easy, and most of the trails are family accessible.

Easy, Fun & Rewarding Hike!
Jul 2017 • Couples
We were visiting the area (Loudoun) for the day and wanted to enjoy a hike to burn off breakfast and have a decent view at the end so we used the web to search and found this place. It was a really nice hike. Easy to find, just off off Battlefield Parkway.

Upon pulling in you can find the walking trail map towards the front center of the lot. They have a few starting points from the lot. We chose the white blaze trail to start and returned on the blue blaze trail. The trail is very easy for the first third. The second third has several hills, but isn't too steep and has bridges over ravines and creeks that need to be crossed. The last portion of the trail is about a 30 - 40 foot descent to the river and it's rather steep. Coming back up, even after walking along the entire riverfront to a different part of the trail was rather steep, so bring appropriate shoes to ensure plenty of traction.

The views at the end of the trail, of the Potomac River are amazing! It's really beautiful, quiet and serene!

It's a quick hike... one you should try for yourself!

Red Rock in April

My partner is from Eerie PA and had mentioned she missed seeing the water, so I took her here on a whim. The trail is short but it is a nice view of the Potomac River, we may come back and have a picnic at a later date.
