Compared to Raven Rocks this is an easy trail. However if you’re looking for a nice trail and don’t feel like hiking up and down a rollercoaster I’d recommend balls bluff. It also has a beautiful view of the Potomac river and many trials as well as history.

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.

Really loved the trail. Really beautiful

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.

Love it!!

Nice trail in an unexpected location. Some steepish sections in and out of ravines. It was slippery in spots the day I was there due to wet leaves. Some trees still down over the trail from winter storms, but not difficult to climb over or go around. Some lovely river views from the bluff.

Orange trail is easy 1.7 miles. Is well marked and includes an overlook of the Potomac River and passes by a Civil War cemetery. Relaxing hike with only slight elevation gains/losses.

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.

Huge park but the trial is disappointing if you like to walk and see something else that just clean short grass

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!

Nothing really interesting to see there.
Easy walk. In 2 hours all is done if you walk slowly.
Good for family with kids, people with dogs, old people...

steep hills but nice shady trail.

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.

Very nice trail. Starts off with a good uphill leg. Nice shady cover!

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.

Good place, good set of trails easy access to goose creek. Few changes may make it better on the trails, they have the names on some poles but after that you don't know what trail you are, colors is a better system as you can mark the trees but with names isn't that easy AND... is only open in weekends, still a good place to go.

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.

A beautiful little park with some History to read on your walk. Great place to go with pups but check for tics when done.
have been walking here for years. Go with someone, not a place to go alone.
very easy hike.

secluded. not heavily traveled. trail is still mostly grass. property is only open on weekends. lots of side trails and loops but not a lot of miles. watch of for ticks. lots of tick / lime disease notices posted at entrance to property and parking. if you bring your dogs, make sure he/she is up to date on their monthly preventatives. brought our GSD and had three ticks after a two hour walk. didn't even wander off trail.

overall, it's nice. not a woody trail, more like a nice walk around a large chunk of property.

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

Really cool and interesting place, unlike surrounding environments

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.

I did this one in May on a Thursday. I'm super out of shape and had no issues. It's beautiful, and we didn't pass a single person. Can't wait to go back.
