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 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.

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.
