Nice trail, pretty, follows a stream for a ways. Very quiet and tranquil. Blue trail was well marked. Easy hike. Would definitely recommend!

Nice, well marked trail especially the first half mile along the creek where the kids can play in the water. Follow the blue blazes. We started at the trailhead that is at the far end of the far (West) parking lot (the one across Trap Rd) near the maintenance facility. Once we arrived at the Filene Center we continued around the Filene Center along the trail that continues along the creek, again still well marked. 3.2 miles total

Great hike for kids and dogs. The river was nice to play in. Also a good trail run option.

Great trail! Enjoyed the sights and sounds of the birds amidst the gurgling of Wolf Trap Run. Very peaceful.

A nice easy and peaceful loop when it’s hot or cold. I use this trail in the winter for a quick outing if it’s super cold. I have also used this trail for trail running which is fun. I like to do two loops (out and back) to get a little more distance. There is rarely a time when I see anyone else on the trail.

Not a good trail after some rain. Most of its gets muddy so I suggest you go when it’s dry. The end on a regular road is disappointing. Trail itself is OK.

Great for dogs and kids, my three year-old loved it! Beware of snakes though, there was one on the path

I was visiting my family and decided to take my 4 year old granddaughter for a hike. After researching several possibilities I decided on Wolf Trap. We had a blast! We saw deer, turtles and a variety of birds enjoying a sunny day. It is a perfect trail for kids or if you are looking for an easy hike just to enjoy nature. More of a nature walk for me. My granddaughter enjoyed the brook and the various bridges crossing it. We also stopped in a garden area and enjoyed a snack.

PERFECT for a family with young children. We went on a cold winter day, enjoyed the stream, enjoyed the bare trees. Can’t wait to do it again in the spring and fall! This is a repeat!

Really nice shaded trail. Just a few areas where we weren't positive which way to go. Last part of trail not in the woods. Otherwise great time walking this trail.

Not crowded and under tree cover for most of the hike, which helps keep it cool in the middle of a D.C. summer.
