Nice trails, but this map is wrong - you can see on my recording where I tried to find the marked trail but couldn't and turned back to take another connector trail. Aside from confusion, very pretty and very close to the river on the Little Gunpowder portion.

Great trail, some parts are paved, mostly gravel. Very easy. Plenty of wildlife lots of butterflies, we saw a family of deer, a blue tailed skink, and a small snake. Bathrooms are nice and well kept.

Absolutely loved this trail! Be sure to pick up a map though, as I got stuck in the bull run trail for a bit as it stems off of the soapstone trail. I parked at the end of I95 and it worked out nicely.

My usual hiking spot is Shenandoah but I just didn't have time for the drive to and back on Saturday so I checked out this place 30 minutes from my house. I was really quite pleasantly surprised by this park. It was a great hike with everything I look for: rugged, steep trails, some great scenery and a reasonable distance from my house. Great old growth, tall trees, boulders, rapids, waterfall. It was very reminiscent of being in the Blue Ridge at some points.
Only criticism is...I'm glad I brought a map. Trails are a little confusing for a first timer. Fortunately this park is no where near as large as Shenandoah so getting lost is no big deal. I'll definitely be a frequent visitor to this park from now on.

I did the switchback trail and really enjoyed it. Great hike for the hot summer days because the tree canopy keeps things cool along the majority of the trail. Will definitely do it again. I just walked this last time but will be taking my bike next time as the trails look really fun for bikes.

hiking

Really enjoyed this one. I did a big loop that was about 6.25 miles total. Some uphill but not a lot. The majority is flat with the river in your side. I definitely want to come back with my bike as the trails looked like a ton of fun for mountain biking. I only saw 4 people total after 3 hours on the trails. Two were on bikes and two were walking. These trails are clearly used for horseback riding a lot as well as there is evidence on the trails. I saw 6 people on horseback across the river but never encountered them along the trail.

Our second hike of this amazing trail. This time we took our 13 year old daughter. It is very challenging at times but the views are well worth the effort. Arrive very early to beat the crowds, bring plenty of water and wear sturdy shoes / boots!

on Indian Head Rail Trail
1 day ago

road biking

This is a nice trail, not too many users (at least today there weren't). We started from the Indian Head side, rode to White Plains and back, about 28 miles round trip. Riding from Indian Head, you get a quick elevation drop for about a mile, then work on elevation gain for about half the ride to White Plains. The return trip to Indian head yelled a quick ride coasting the slight down-hill for most of the ride, but then you need to get to work to get up the last mile back to the trip head...should be quite easy for the moderate biker.
Lots of over-hanging trees provide good shade on hot and sunny days (like today).
