A delightful, mostly shaded hike through the woods. Over six miles you get a nice array of scenery. If you like seclusion, come on a Wednesday afternoon — I saw only a handful of people. Parking was no issue on the side of the road. The trail is well-maintained but not always thoroughly marked. There were a couple spots where it seemed like you had to pick a path, but the most logical, consistent foot path was the right choice each time. Follow the red “north” signs on the way out and the white “south” signs on the way back. I went counter-clockwise, meaning I walked along the river, to my right, on the way back.

It was an okay trail! A bit hard to follow, definitely needed to follow the map. Also not sure where the waterfall is. Overall, pretty enjoyable

It was an easy hike. Well maintained path. Lots of people out by the river swimming. Watch out for bikers though, they’ll come flying around a corner!

My RECORDING today was 2.9-miles, which included All of Hop The Snake and a loop around half of the Rockburn Branch Trail. - Hop The Snake is one of the oldest biker trails and it's always in ruff shape. - Roots, Rocks, Tree jumps, mud holes and trenches. - Just what they like. - Due to the extreme heat I came super early and parked out on Elibank Rd. - Part of this area is Private Property but trail access is granted. - I hiked in from the main entry of the Belmont Estate road. - Hop The Snake crosses the private road two times pending your direction of trail.

The upper trail pretty sandy and not technical. Very few bugs and trails were pretty quiet in the afternoon. This is a good place to park if you are looking to just hike and avoid the Avolon park entrance. It's mostly just side of the road parking with a small lot a 1/4 mile from the trailhead. On our way out we passed by the park entrance and there were maybe 100+ cars parked out on the main road.

App is wrong. This is campground connector and loop trails primarily with a portion as the river ridge trail.

This was a great hike! We got there early on Friday morning. There were a few cars by the entrance. Thank goodness we had downloaded the map off this app though! Markings are VERY unclear. We came across a few people in the beginning, mostly bikers. And the loop was pretty sparse of people. Once we got on the out and back portion though, we started coming across more people. Some parts of the trail are pretty narrow, so it can be hard to get out of the way. There’s plenty of access points/ and “beaches” to the water you can have a resting point at. There’s also a point on the trail where you’re climbing uphill on a BGE access trail just a heads up because we were a little confused at that point.

Beautiful trail! There is nice tree covering, so it helped me stay cool. Got to see some wild owls and other wild life. It is easy to get lost so make sure you pay attention to where you’re going. I can’t wait to got back!

Most of the river road trail is easy; it starts as a paved road, then gravel. For a while we followed what we thought was the trail along the river, then we was another hiker coming down to the river from a trail that was on slightly higher ground. For about the last .75 miles before Ilichester Road, the trail is not well marked. We passed a small group of people who were similarly confused!

Easy trail if you are an experienced hiker. Lots of different paths to take. It’s pretty with the songbirds and river/brook. The main part is heavily trafficked but once you go past the falls I saw a total of two people until I connected back to the main trail.

Love this trail - ruins about 1.5 miles in. I don’t know why this didn’t record but dog and I did about 3.5 miles total. Also, not much parking, especially on Daniels Road side.

Great for viewing the waterfall. Trail was a little narrow and precarious

Heavily wooded, attractive trail; nice places to sit along the stream towards the end (we went counter-clockwise). Only downfall was the large number of mountain bikers (a summer Sunday morning, 8:30-11:00-ish). To their credit, each group called out loudly to alert us, so we had plenty of time to step off-trail; and said “thank you!” as they passed. I wish all mountain bikers were as polite! If not for the bike traffic, I would have rated this a 5.

Thank you Wendy for your suggestion, we changed the trail tag to include mountain biking.
