Great running trail! Awesome trees!

The caves with the waterfall and white pebbles in the steam made the hike unique. Its worth the extra hike to the white rocks.

A fun hike. I don't think I'd classify as "Hard" but there's a bit of rock hopping. It does have a pretty unique summit. Fun for pretty much the whole fam. Littles may need to be carried for 1/3 or more of the hike.

Great exercise trail for walking, biking, or running. Would be five stars but there are no great views, just streams and woods. There are steep hills for a strenuous run, but with a good plan you can walk for a couple of miles without overworking it.

Very scenic trail with at least a dozen stream crossings. So do not recommend after a heavy rain, the high water makes navigating across some spots a little difficult. But on normal does u can step stones across most places. The trail it's self isn't to hard my 8 year old daughter made the hike. When you reach the Devil's bathtub it is beautiful and offers a good size water hole below it, which is good for cooling off on a hot day. So pack a swim suit.

Did Little Sluice as a 13 mile circuit and overnight trip several years ago. Camped on the summit on a near freezing January weekend but the sunrise and sunset were fantastic. The views were probably better due to the trees being bare at that time of year. Definitely check out the rock scramble.

Easy, fun little hike. Gorgeous views!

Went with my wife and two dogs. Beautiful short moderate hike.

This is a oasis park that I typically hike to from my home. Each visit represents to get away from the norms of life’s challenges. The opportunity to hike along the James River is amazing.

It's a great trail also great a part of history at the same time in RVA....

People we talked to down in Va. called this Three Ridges. Great hike very gradual uphill after, first grade up. Incredible views from the top.

Easy trail but I love this trail. The history is incredible with this trail. good for kids and dogs ...

Great trail. Going in at the parking area I got closer to 11 miles than what AllTrails says. Great scenery. There are a few stream crossing. Using stones and downed trees its not a problem for an adult with decent balance or someone who doesn't mind getting wet.

I agree the trail is poorly marked. I ended up using gps of the trail to stay on track. Very runnable in spots. Quite and peaceful.

I like this hike. It’s less than two hours drive from Richmond. If you’re a strong hiker you can do it in a day (7-9 hours), it has vistas, climbs, streams, waterfalls, rock scrambles, App Trail hikers to say hi to, a little bit of everything. And then at the end you can drive an AT through hiker to down to Devil’s Backbone at the base of the hill in exchange for him buying you a beer :)

I would call it difficult not moderate though.

Go in the morning, it's beautiful and quiet. Going all the way down to the base of the falls is worth the effort too.

Good little hike. Johnson’s Farm was interesting but other than that there is not much to see other than forest for remainder of hike. Views are obstructed by trees and the feeling of being on a hike is sort of lost as you hear mowers and work being done on nearby parkway.

The trail is definitely more of a mountain biking trail. It’s not very well maintained and it’s so narrow I was paranoid about the idea of encountering other hikers or bikers. The trail is incorrectly described as a loop, as it ends in a weird place, which forces you to cut across a bunch of athletic fields (not a good time when every field is being used for soccer practice).

Decent hike. It can be 1.7 miles or 2.7 depending on wether you make it a loop down the Appalachian Trail. Otherwise, just walk up to the summit and back.

Good short moderate trail for leashed dogs and kids.

I’ll visit again.

Pretty tame trail, distance and views are cut in half if you want to jog/run or if you bring dogs, it’s not allowed on much of the trail, but still a beautiful scenic trail, a nice get away from everything hectic around it

Great hike! great view from White Rock, Sand Cave is amazing too

I’m a newbie & gearing up for Old Rag Mountain for my birthday in October. This is nice & easy & close to my work. Beautiful day to be out at lunch. Will definitely do this one again, but looking forward to some of the others around the ‘Burg.

Easy stroll through the wilderness, well maintained walking path easy for very young kids.

A beautiful taste of spring - violets are blooming.

Great hike with beautiful waterfall, we did the route counterclockwise which we would recommend for trail running as the footing was more stable for the descent. Coming back up Cornelius Creek presented some creek crossing challenges due to the volume of water.

Great trail to hike! Especially in the morning and it was a quick one too considering how I did this one right before my friend’s wedding in the evening. Took me about 5 hours to and back. The hike to the top consists of about 1.7 miles of uphill climb followed by 0.7 mile of climbing over rocks. Word of caution, there is no cell reception until you get to the top, so it’s advisable to hike with someone for safety.
