On the park map this is called the Quantico Cascades Trail. Park in lot E. At the end of the trail it is definitely cascades - no waterfall - but still beautiful! Easy hike with 3 year old, 5 year old, and dog.

Nice little trail. Park in lot E and then the trail head is well marked then follow the yellow blazes. There is limited parking, maybe 8 spots. The parking area faces an open area with picnic tables so you can lunch before or after your walk. The hike itself is pretty, woods with old growth trees. The cascades are maybe more of a river with rocks but sit and listen to them for awhile before heading back. The are small but beautiful. Somewhat steep right at the end so you can get your heart-rate up a bit. Nice little hike for some quiet forest time.

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
