ran this today for about 4 miles. missed the blaze and it turned into a loop back to bull run road. It was ok because of the storm last night. Trail was like a swamp. met a huge turtle at the begining. I will return and finish this trail with 5 -6 mile out back runs. Not interested in this as a full hike.

I hiked 5 miles (total, out and back) with my dogs and it was shady and quiet. (Started at the Compton Rd entrance.) Not challenging at all, except at the trail entrance. Narrow trail at times where the dogs were walking one behind the other. Mostly grassy trails with several spots to let the dogs play in the water.

This trail is billed as the longest natural surface trail in Northern Virginia. I wouldnt rate it as hard, but there are some taxing areas. I have done the whole thing once, but usually start at Fountainhead trailhead, hike to Bull Run Marina, 6.5 miles, and then turn around. I enjoyed it more when it was colder and there were not many people out there. A great spot for a hike if you dont feel like driving 1.5 hours plus.

I would say that this was a pretty easy trail. We didn't do the entire 17 miles, but the wildflowers were beautiful! I do with the path was a bit wider, and I could have done without the horse turds

tough trail to attempt to complete all at once. from several egress points you can shuttle out and back for short distances. great hills and water views. bicycles now are welcome also.
