Good for a short get away in the middle of suburbia. Fairly flat with little notable scenery.

11-18, Took us 2hr 40 mins to complete. Spectacular views along the Potomac. I think I’ve have given it a 5-star rating if it was an out and back but I didn’t love the 2nd half (away from the water). Overall a really nice hike. Not too much elevation gain.

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!

One of my favorite walks to do in the area. It’s a pretty trail and nice not having to pay the entrance fee at great falls.

A short day hike. The best view was actually at the 3 overlooks.

This trail was surprisingly fun with some decent incline and rock scrambles. Crowds are no joke but around the middle it was very thinned out (spent about 20 minutes just waiting to get to the gate of the park... then had to follow someone leaving in order to park). Annual passes to great falls are 30$ so might be worth it for people who plan on coming back a couple times. GORGEOUS fall colors.

Relatively flat and well marked path. Nice views of the water and the falls. Started a little crowded around 9/9:30. Took us about an hour with our dog.

Nice trail fits all purpose and all ages. Fatanstic view and many suprises if you like to explore.

Enjoying yes this trail since all Billy Goat trails were closed due to flooding.

Area is nice. Trails are marked but not well kept. Lots of different trails around the park and a nice visitor center. Also has a nature center but didn’t get a chance to check it out.

We went on a rainy Sunday and there were only a few people around. The river trail was the rockiest, and the other trails were mostly gravel. Not too much incline either, so they were pretty easy to hike.

Awesome!!

$10 entrance fee but you can walk right up to the overlooks from the parking lot. It was a bit too crowded for my liking but beautiful views. The trail was pretty easy. Really cool experience if you have never been here before!

Great trail. Good workout and a variety of scenery.

Great views maintain trails marked areas a lot of historical points

loved the serenity at 7 AM and the views from the river trail. explored all trails a little. by 9AM it gets very busy and yet it's still peaceful. The 10 dollar entrance fee is a bit high but i am glad i visited.

Easy trail - mind your step as it can get a bit rocky and muddy in some areas. This trail will take you from Great Falls Park up to Riverbend Park and back. Bug spray is a plus in the summer months when the mosquito are in full force.

Great trail with my dog

Hiked this trail as part of a training session for an upcoming long distance backpacking hike. I walked the loop as depicted. About 6.8 miles if you believe my GPS. Definitely not Easy. I would rate it as moderate. Very few level stretches and about 90 percent up or down in the first 80 percent of the trail. Definitely need bug spray in mid August. Parallels a nice stream for about a mile or so in the second half. Lots of trees. Bet it would be very pretty in the Fall. Bring lots of water.

I loved this loop, there was the perfect mix of rock scrambles and easy trail hikes that I never got tired. Beautiful things to see and for going on a Sunday afternoon it really wasn't too crowded. Great hike!

it is more of a walk. when sunny, it is very crowded.

Great out & back for all levels and is kid friendly. Gets very crowded, so get there early. Very scenic with the river along the entire length of the trail, with plenty of places to stop and enjoy the views.

Great trail but trailhead not where depicted in All Trails.
