Beautiful hike. Enjoyed the view at White Rocks more than Sugarloaf!

Hike will test a bit. Limited views of the valley below. Definitely recommend avoiding the weekend crowds.

This was a perfect hike very close to Washington DC. A privately owned mountain is very well kept. As you arrive turn up the one way road and head to the the west view parking lot which is ample. There you will find the trail head going west at the circle to the east up the hill to the left. We chose the start going west and found the hike well marked and very rocky. The almost 6 mile hike with a stop at white rock overlook took us less than 3 hours but at times with some changes in elevations but nothing difficult. Great hike!

Hiked this trail on a Thursday. Not very heavily trafficked. A few other hikers and two runners. The view at White Rocks is nice and the view near our parking area was amazing. Nice area and well maintained trail.
