Explore the most popular hiking trails near Leesburg with hand-curated trail maps and driving directions as well as detailed reviews and photos from hikers, campers and nature lovers like you.

The area is pretty. Trails are fairly easy with minimal elevation gain. It can be muddy in places after it rains. Several stream crossings on the orange trail. Trail map and trails themselves aren't well marked - some have the blazes and then when you get into the cemetery area where all of the trails converge, the trails have names which are not indicated on any map. There is a port-a-potty in the parking area.

A easy trail for walking

Great trail and hike, but the mapped loop was not all the orange trail, some of it was blue and some red blazes. Lots of intersecting trails here so I’d suggest having your phone well charged to navigate!

not an easy trail as it is listed. no signs, only painted colors on trees. not for kids by any means, no clear views of any water, muddy, overgrown. don't waste your time.

Nice, mostly easy path (can take more challenging inclines if desired). The trails could be marked a little more clearly.

Great short easy hike with my daughter out of a whim. Will be back and take longer path next time.

Hiked the orange trail with our 3.5 year old, he had no problems or issues at all. Fun trail, fairly secluded considering we went on a weekend mid-July. Mostly shaded. Unfortunately not much of a view at all, but the historical aspects that you come across are rather interesting.

My favorite local trail. I go on trail runs here and find the difficulty to be moderate. One steep hill. Sometimes slippery after rainy days. Not busy on weekdays.

Very nice short little hike. Surprisingly nice for being so close to Leesburg!

This short hike in the woods offers a pretty nice view of the Potomac. The trail was muddy in some places and had some trees to hop over. It was fun overall.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
