Starting in the colonial farm area, the trail starts at a memorial, then goes along the river side weaving in between buildings. Breaking free of the farm buildings takes you past cow pastures, chestnut fields, and a steeper hike with an overlook. Entering the Pumpkin ash trail, walk along the water's edge of the Potomac river, with great views--then back along the boardwalk trail meeting up with the picnic and fishing pier area. A great trail with many diverse sections, and unique views.

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

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.

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.
