Wonderfully scenic trail at Great Falls Park, Virginia. This figure-8 hike encompasses the narrow, rocky River Trail south from the Great Falls Visitor Center and loops around. The terrain is mostly flat with some rolling hills. The hike begins at the Great Falls Visitor's Center, travels south and around to the River trail to Riverbend Nature Center, and loops back to the Great Falls Visitors center. The hike from Riverbend Nature Center to the Great Falls Visitors Center is through the woods on marked and unmarked trails. So long as you keep the Potomac River to your left - and in the winter can see it periodically. You'll be fine. If you're concerned about this loop, just take the trail back along the river.

Just starting out hiking again after a few years off.. This was a good trail to pick back up on. Not too hard yet still fun to complete. Ended up taking the Difficult Run Trail at the end and connecting back up with the Ridge Trail. I would recommend it!
