This was a good trail and the scenery was beautiful. The recent rains improved the falls with the cool weather was perfect. Did more than just the falls trail.

I was able to run this trail while visiting family back east this last February. I was a bit disappointed with the falls, but it was the end of winter. Still, I had an enjoyable time, and only saw a handful of people. Was great getting away from the hustle and bustle of Northern VA, and being on the trails is always so much better than being on the roads any day! Considering the location, this is still a really enjoyable outing.

A nice quiet walk for a warm January day. Beaver is building a dam across the creek at the end of the trail. He came out to say hello while I sat and ate lunch.

For a longer out and back, park at the Turkey Run Education Center and combine the Mary Bird Branch Trail (0.5 mi one way) with this trail.

Not much a destination when the water is low and be careful for snakes! Overall decent hike

It was really good. I thought there would be more falls, but very beautiful. Changed my perspective on hiking in Virginia.

Quick and easy! Slight incline on the way back up from Quantico Creek but otherwise mostly wide and level.

Nice trail, wide most if the way then a bit more narrow going down to the falls. Nice place to skip rocks and look at stream life with little ones at the bottom. It is a bit steep going back so people were carrying their smaller more portly pups, but otherwise a decent trail for kids, adults and dogs. Nice views!

When added with some of the other trails in Potomac National Forest, it makes for a good hike.
