Great trail to go on with small groups of people. Once you get away from the trail head it gets less crowded. Definitely recommend for those that want a lengthy trail that won't be too difficult for those who aren't used to it.

I only did about two miles of this trail. Was very quiet, not a soul around.

Nice loop trail in Prince William park, it's a pretty easy trail. Hiked it with my elderly mother and she was able to do the full trail without any issues. Has some beautiful sights

Wonderful hike.

Was a nice easy Saturday morning hike. Really like PW Forest for pretty walks a quick drive from home.

Beautiful and moderate trail with some especially beautiful portions along the creek.

Easy for most of it. About 1/3rd is going up and down. We think it’s a moderate hike for weekend hikers.

Pretty easy walk in the woods. There is one spot where it gets a bit steeper and rocky for about .25 miles. Pretty scenery and a nice walk along a stream.

Started off the trail straight threw the woods by the play ground , nice to go off trail every now and then. Came up by the river for half of it , super nice and on the way back gets rocky so watch your step.

This trail is a nice mile and half loop that leads you back to the visitors center. It is very scenic and you get some nice views of creeks and bridges. The trail in general has a lot of roots and some areas are pretty muddy, just be careful where you walk. This is a dog friendly trail, and our corgi enjoyed the smells. The tail end of the walk has one major hill (not a gradual rise, but a steep one). My elderly parents struggled to get to the top. Would definitely classify this walk as moderate, especially for new walkers, kids, and elderly. The park does have an entry fee per car.

This is a great trail which ever way you walk it. If I had children with me, on a sunny warm day, I would walk it the opposite way as the river would be more interesting to them and they may not feel as tired. My picture is taken almost halfway where there are picnic tables.

Perfect trail, not overly populated. Can definitely let the dogs off leash for long periods of time before seeing another person. Beautiful river walk for quite some time. Especially nice since it wasn’t muddy at all. Nice parts that had wooden bridge features or planks put up where it obviously gets very muddy.

Great trail. Well marked and easy to follow. Mostly tree covered with sounds of water almost the whole trail. Lots of tree roots but easy to navigate.

Great trail with light foot traffic. The park map can be a bit confusing as certain bridges are marked, yet others are not (excluding mini bridges to cross a small dip). Pretty good hike to tire you out! Just wish the camping ground half way through had a functional water fountain to refill :(
