Fun little path. A couple of optional paths as well if you want to mix it up after doing the main path. Some downed trees you have to go over or under when we went. 4 year old handled it no problem. Some vertical areas and can be slightly slippery when wet. Fun path. Took an hour total. Will come back again.

Nice easy trail, some elevation changes but nothing our 3 year old couldn't handle. Mostly shaded, not busy at all. Could be pretty muddy after a rainy day.

Great view of the river. Liked the safety fence because we had a 3 year old with us and the ruins were an added surprise.

A few steep parts, and fallen trees, made the trail a little hard to follow

White trail was nice. Two kids 7 and 3 were able to do it with some help on the steep parts. It’s very pretty if take the path down to the water.

Great hike. I went with my kids (6 and 8). Perfect distance for them. Some elevation changes and views of the river. We strayed from the white trail onto orange which had quite a bit of thorn vines. Saw a few other hikers and a few runners on a mid November day.

A nice and easy trial. Very pleasant under in the forest and beside the Potomac. I recommend for a family time. Only bad thing, in 1 hour all is done!

Nice trail for a short hike. Mostly easy but a couple moderate, somewhat challenging areas (I only did the white trail) but these are very short. Nice views of the river up high and then a little walk along the shore.

It is not an easy trail
There are some steep incline and declines
It is a fine short walk otherwise

Most of the trail is a real quiet escape from the city.

Easy trail but too many younger just hanging around in the trail, in my opinion safety could be an issue. I hope l am wrong and was just that day that I visited the trail.

Nice trail. Some parts of the trail are more moderate than easy. Nice wooded trails. Great view at waters edge. Loved it.

Went here solo with the pup. It's a nice quiet walk, bridges and trees to get over so not just a walk, feels like a hike. I recommend finding the entrance on the right past the house and starting that way then you'll end on the high-note of views rather than starting with them and ending with traffic. I did white loop.

I hiked the green trail with my two boys, ages 6 and 3, and we all enjoyed this very much. There are some nice variations in gradation and terrain and a beautiful view of the Potomac River as well.

Trail in Nov is full of leaves, and a bit difficult to follow. Would rate this VP between easy and moderate.

I had fun. It's an easy and quick hiking. It's more like a walk in a park/along a river.

Green is "easy"
White is hard and steep
There's yellow and maybe one other color - haven't done those yet.

Water over looks are nice

I love red rock. I've been going there since I was a kid always fun and it's a place u can go off trail and be safe. I also went geocaching and that was awesome too.
