    Great trail right outside of G-ville. it's well-kept enough to trail run, and it's not uncommon to see bikers on the trail. There is a small area where you can see a pond, and a stream that the trail parallels for various portions of the trail. I'll be back for trail runs.

    Fun trail. Pleasant hike throughout, and great view of the waterfall with a nice viewing platform and bench.

    Awesome trail. It's a quick up and back hike (done easily in 2 hours) up the mountain to a viewing deck at the cliff seen in the picture. The trail is beautiful for the duration, and the vantage point is incredible.

    Getting to this trail is easy from any parking area in the park. If you use the map on the alltrails app, you can easily connect to the trail which is just the trail that circles the outside of the park. This trail is basically a nature walk. No epic views or anything, but consistently pleasant trail with some streams and meadows nearby, and a lot of deer in the forest. It's relatively unused considering how close it is to DC. There are a number of instances where it gets pretty close to the freeway, so for about half the hike, you can hear road noise. There are only a few points where you can visualize the freeway. My only complaint, and it would keep me from coming back in the spring or summer, is the number of ticks. I had at least 5 ticks on me, and the dog had over 10. Whenever we would sit, we could see ticks scurrying up our legs. Pretty gross. Afterwards, there were ticks in the car, and in the gear. A lot of people camp in the area. Apparently they are less weirded out by ticks than I am...

    Super pretty little trail, especially so close to DC. Since it starts in the middle of the park, you don't get any road noise which can be an issue on Perimeter trail. It's basically a pleasant, short, nature walk. There are also a lot of deer. My only complaint is the number of ticks. You definitely need to check yourself, your gear, and your dog afterwards in you go May-Aug. I ended up doing Dogwood and Perimeter, and my dog had over 10 ticks and I had 5. I'm pretty weirded out by ticks, so it would be something that would keep me from coming back during tick season.
