Neat place to walk your dog. There’s a fun visitor center and historic small farms and buildings. Zolie loved the cows, pigs and turkeys :)

Very scenic trail. We saw a lot of wildlife. The farms aspect was also very nice. The trail is pretty well marked, but if you're doing the loop you have to know when to switch from following one trail to another. Some parts of the trail were actually maintenance roads. No complaints there, I just want others to know that they should definitely familiarize themselves with the map beforehand since you'll be between trails at some points.

Very flat loop with all of its elevation change in one segment, the Paw Paw Trail. Best view of the Potomac River is from the pier behind the Visitor Center. Nice hike for a warm weather weekend: very few people come here even then.

Good scenery down by the water with a view of Mount Vernon. Blackberry Trail is uninspired and scenery falls off on most of the back end. I would return in the fall or summer to do again.

Nice hike by the river, well marked. Enjoyed the beauty of the Fall season with the Colonial Farm as a backdrop.

Beautiful three mile loop if you combine the trails. The trail is littered with beautiful water views, wildflowers, picturesque greenery, wildlife, and farm animals.

great place for trails. there's many trails to choose from and do, lots of great scenery over the water. Perfect for a family hike or beginners or a nature hike.

Trails were all very well maintained but on the bluebird trail and paw paw trail there were a few times it split into an easier trail and a harder trail, no sign to indicate that etc. Some places could use better signs but it was very beautiful and I didn't see any trash or littering. the port a pottys I'm the front were very clean and a welcome site after hiking a few trails. Hardly any spiderwebs etc on the trail to run into etc. The map in the front of the visitor center is a little confusing but I enjoyed a variety of trails to choose from. We even saw a fawn on the way back. the fishing dock is very nice as well and offers a great view.

Nice views

A great trail for people of all ages and levels. The well kept grounds offer hiking, fishing, cayaking and historical tours of colonial-era farms. The staff is very nice and well-preserved. The colonial reenactors are very, very good, fun and informative without being boring. There are a variety of trails of different levels, with the white arboretum trail being the most challenging. The trails are well kept and signed and the map is easy to follow. The visitor center has snacks, maps and bathrooms that were out of order (July 2016) with porta popties available. Highly recommend this park for families, couples and dog owners. Not recommended for serious athletes seeking a challenging hike.

There are so many trails here, it's awesome. There is awesome an interactive farm by the fishing pier. The bluebird trail is great for strollers, bikes and leisurely walking.

Great series of trails at the National Colonial Farm. There are 6 trails in the Farm area. Total mileage is approximately 8.5 miles. Here is link to park map ( Enjoyable for all ages. There are also period docets for special events, these can be found at the above site also.

5 stars for many unique trails, from farm to forest to water.
