very nice

so many choices, great trails, not difficult. great for hiking, running and off-road biking. Also good trout fishing and of course horse back riding!

A very nice, fairly easy mountain bike trail that offered everything I wanted--good views, well maintained trail, and enough variety to offer a challenge. Very few hikers and nearly no bikers meant I had the trail almost all to myself. Nice scenic ride...I'll definitely do it again.

Nice hike Ruth a great pay offf

Close to busy roadways, but otherwise great trail.

A really nice trail in the fall! Would definitely rate it more moderate than hard, initial hike up the mountain was definitely steep but not too difficult. Would not suggest climbing chimney rock without good grip shoes, though. Beautiful views, about a 2 1/2 hour trip in and out but we stopped a lot for pictures!

this was a great trail. we only managed to get just under 9 miles completed. took about 4 hours, taking a 30 minute break for lunch. next time we need to start very early. will probably take close to 8-9 hours to hike the whole thing. I like the varying terrain. can't wait to finish the whole thing. bring lots of water.!

Start off in an open field. Head into the woods and down to a river creek. Dogs love swimming here. Good easy hike.

Great hike along the river. Fun cliffs to climb on. Not well suited for most dogs.

Popular, go early. Arrive before 8:30 am if u want a quiet trail and good parking on the weekend. Hiking boots recommended but not necessary. Went on a Late Sept. saturday morning at 8:15 from the middle of the trail. It took two 30 year old semi-fit women 2 hours to do part A (1.7 miles). Up and down and rocky. Another hour to see the outlook of the Great Falls was nice, too but its probably not that 'Great' if you've seen other places.

Awesome fun, well marked with loads of hikers. Mid Atlantic Hiking Assoc. was there joining the fun. Friendly dog trail too!
Great overlook of the valley, and lake. Rock climbing was taking place at the overlook as well . Loads of fun.

Good cyclocross beginners experience.

Beautiful hike to some really nice vistas. The clockwise loop from the Visitor Center seemed to be a more gradual climb.
