Nice trail in the beautiful Prince William Forest. A fair amount of relatively short up and down grades. Some rocky and/or heavily rooted areas.

Trail ran a portion of the trail and was delighted. Followed a beautiful creek and the trail was well maintained. A bit steep in places and small sections of rocks and roots that making footing a bit tricky. I was in shade the whole way and it felt cool in spite of a hot July day. I'll be back.

Excellent trail that follows The south Quantico Creek for several miles. There are several small to medium waterfall features. In spring parts of the trail are wet and muddy but still passable. There are several well constructed bridges over small water features. Not great for birding unless you stop many times along the way. But overall a very good relatively easy trail for hiking and trail running.

I really enjoy this portion of the trail area in Prince William Forest Park. Going either direction you can keep up some speed most of the way when running, however there are some areas that you’ll need to slow down for and pick your way over some rocks. I included this trail in a portion of a long run recently. Currently a lot of leaves are covering the trail and it can be difficult to see the rocks and roots that are trying to roll your ankles. Enjoy!

Surprisingly beautiful section of the river in late fall great reflections in the water nice gentle cascades. Get off the trail and get a closer look if you can.

Easy hike it’s a bit too close to roads and civilization for a true hike. The trail is very well kept.

We did not like this trail - too close to busy roads - heard a lot of traffic - also had to cross a busy road

It is a fun trail, not very strenuous, and runs along the South Fork of Quantico Creek for long stretches. There are numerous different loops, longer or shorter that can be made with the various trails in the park. Great park for the closeness to D.C. **Check the Prince William Forest Park map of trails from the park -- the map here is Not correct**

Way more to this trial, but if your looking for a fun (easy) scenic trail to do after work or on the weekend when you only have a few hours, than this is the trail to go to. Ample parking at the start as well as along the first stretch of scenic drive allow flexibility and the network connecting other trails is very nice and easy.

Long run along a steady creek. Good paced trail for high tempo

The whole trail system in PW Forest is the best I've experienced on East Coast. All trails and facilities are maintained daily. Restrooms and/or fixed water points are positioned every 3 miles, so you are never more than an hours walk from resupply or emergency aid. SVT is my favorite of the trails, because it's the longest and and has best terrain and scenery. Slightly technical at mid-way parts along the creek, and very narrow single track. Just a great, usually uncrowded trail to run any day if you live nearby.

Beautiful walk along the river. The trail is not a loop. It's one way. Signs between trails are not clear. We would have been lost with out Trail Tracker. Nevertheless will be back.

I thoroughly enjoyed this trail. It was a very relaxing trail to walk along with the sound of trickling water. Did this on Black Friday and found myself alone in the woods, whereas everyone else might have been shopping. The weather was nice and sunny. The leaves permeated the ground. It was a wonderful day for a hike in the woods

Did this trail as part of a loop with the North Valley and Laurel Trail. Total 9 mi. The South Valley Trail itself is 9mi one way. Will definitely go back when the weather is warmer and days longer to do this entire trail. I hit one of the steeper parts of my hike here. But over all was a pretty easy hike. There were a few signs just after the trail marker for Parking Lot B that the trail ended. At that point there is a bridge and I guess the trail used to go under the bridge. I crossed the road and picked up the trail on the other side. Further down the trail it looks like they were detouring the path from right along the creek to about 10-20 yards up from the creek....perhaps due to erosion. There were a few folks walking their dogs at the beginning and ending of the hike but overall solitude factor was pretty high.

Very nice trail in beautiful Prince William Forest. A fair amount of up and down grades, but none too long. Some roots and rocks in places makes running a bit challenging. I started at a jog, had to slow in some places, and eventually dropped to a hike. I did about 4.5 miles on this trail before turning off on other trails. I then came back and did the other parts in pieces. The intersections with other trails are marked. The blazes seemed fairly far apart and some areas where the ground cover made things unclear, so there were a couple areas where I had to pause and decide which way was actually the trail.
