Beautiful place with lots of trails to choose from and all lead to gorgeous hikes!

Enjoyable, hiked part of it with my friends and our dogs. Everyone had fun, water is good to cool off in

There were many trails to choose from. Grab a map! Great hike.

Awesome to learn something new and hangout with friends and family

A nice afternoon hike that is just a short distance from DC. If you have time, the Shenandoahs are only 90 minutes away and so much better, but sometimes you only have an afternoon or just cannot get to the Shenandoahs. This hike is a great close in one in DC with good streams and more solitude than you would expect.

Trail has mis-marking. Overall a great trail though.

saw Mr Beaver when creek was frozen.

Lovely hike (did the South Valley Trail to the North Valley Trail out and back). Several opportunities to cross the stream on logs which was fun. Would rate easy not moderate, but definitely enjoyable.

Trail is very well maintained, the blazes could be a little easier to find in some spots though. Really enjoyed the hike, no traffic on a Thursday afternoon.

The loop is decent. Not much variety in the scenery, but the pets along the creek are nice. Bathroom stop along the way is a plus. Trail was relatively empty on a gray weekend day, which is nice if that's what you're looking for.

Not what I was expecting. Definitely wont be back again. The $7 charge was not worth it at all.

Trail is well maintained and easy to hike. I was recovering from a surgery and it offered a good chance for a nice walk and get a light exercise. Lots of shades.

Nice and easy. Park at Turkey Run Campground/Education Center and combine with Quantico Falls/Cascade trail for a longer easy out and back.

It is a fun trail, not very strenuous, and runs along the South Fork of Quantico Creek for long stretches. There are numerous different loops, longer or shorter that can be made with the various trails in the park. Great park for the closeness to D.C. **Check the Prince William Forest Park map of trails from the park -- the map here is Not correct**

It's actually not a loop but joins up to a few trails and a couple of roads. We did it as part of a big loop, approx 8.5 miles. We parked at Lot A, went up Turkey Run Ridge Trail, joined up with Old Black Top Rd at the TREC, then turned left at High Meadows Trail and took that south to South Vally Trail, turned left and back to Parking lot A for a total of approx 8.5 miles.

Great hike! Many different paths to take runs along a stream for quite a bit of the hike. Seen plenty of wildlife and enjoyed a mild weather day on the trail. Will come back again!

A nice and varied trail. There is a park policeman on duty here, however, who is very aggressive, unnecessarily so. Sort of a Barney Fife enforcer. We weren't used to that--normally everyone connected with this park is very friendly and welcoming.

Nice easy, scenic trail. Great for families and pets.

Lots of trails to pick from. Love it here!

Every time I go out there I love it.

Way more to this trial, but if your looking for a fun (easy) scenic trail to do after work or on the weekend when you only have a few hours, than this is the trail to go to. Ample parking at the start as well as along the first stretch of scenic drive allow flexibility and the network connecting other trails is very nice and easy.

When added with some of the other trails in Potomac National Forest, it makes for a good hike. Short by itself, small uphill section (or downhill depending which way you are coming from). Relatively easy.

Long run along a steady creek. Good paced trail for high tempo
