Awesome and beautiful hike! There are a few different trail options, we stuck to blue and orange. There are some hills but it's a defined path so not too bad. Really beautiful views when you get to the falls and river bank. Only downside is that there were lots of people swimming at the falls area and sadly lots of trash :( makes for a less serene experience but it probably depends on when you go. The litter though, very sad. If only people would clean up after themselves to protect this preserve. Overall though, it was worth it for me and I'd go again.

Parking at: The Real Scotts Run, Scott's Run, McLean, VA. The address mentioned http://www.fairfaxcounty.gov/parks/scottsrun/ leads to other side of 495. there is a same address but going towards the Great Falls direction. There is one parking spot, Scott's Run East Entrance. 7354-7386 Georgetown Pike, McLean, VA 22102. No restroom area.

This is a wonderful little get away that is in a lovely area not far the city. Waterfall was beautiful. There were a lot of high schoolers swimming and drinking. The major downside to this trail is that it is near sewer lines, so parts of the trail smelled of sewage tremendously.

Good day and good walk...

Pretty trail; easy to follow. Somewhat crowded parking. Do NOT enter the water at the bottom of the trail - it is seeage runoff! Also, it's illegal.
