Good trail, easy walk or run with couple of cross main road.

I wouldn’t say this trail is “easy” because it is quite rocky in some parts.
But it’s a lovely trail and we enjoyed it- myself, my 4yo and my pup.

Nice short hiking trail.
Muddy and buggy(both from water I guess) but has great mountain-like trail and scenery.

Peaceful hike! Not terribly muddy considering the recent rainy weather. Trail is easy to follow!

A decent walk through great history. The views are nothing special, but the distance makes for good exercise, the historical buildings, battle site, and the bridge along the path make this a great half day walk in the DC area.

Pretty rolling hills. Taking in the historical exhibits is the best part.

one of my favorite places I have ever ran.

I really enjoy the trails at Manassas. Great place to take the dog on a weekend.

Keep in mind, the trail is around a historic battlefield. Given that it is a battlefield, it is mostly cleared, with not that many trees. But it is beautiful, hilly, and with the mountains off in the horizon. It can be hard to distinguish the path from the hills because it is a flattened grass trail to preserve the original look. The nearby roads are also unfortunately a bit loud and an eyesore.

Favorite battlefield hike there is. Highly recommend.

Good trail and excellent history along the way. However, signage needs some upgrading. I would have taken many wrong turns ( and took at least one) if I had not stopped to get a trail map. Overall though excellent hike and I will be back.

Pretty cool trail if you like the history behind if. As well as very scenic

I would reccomend the first battle loop first then this. This is a good easy run, and just ok for a hike. The road crossings and ares the trail is connected via the roadways becomes a bit annoying. I would much rather stay on trail the entire time. It offers good views, nice monuments and some beautiful wild life.

this is a great walk or run. I frequently run this loop starting out at the stone bridge and heading out towards matthews hill. Good up and down hills along this stretch. Wooded and open areas. only two street crossings. Several streams, and wild life along this trail. Great during sunset.

Gorgeous park and hiking trails! Scenic natural beauty is abundant here. After a vigorous hike, I love to visit Paradise Springs Springs Winery which is walking distance from the Yates Ford Road parking lot.

My dogs love this trail. Some deer, foxes, squirrels, and water fowl. Depending on the weather it can be muddy or hard. Rocks in part. It is connected to the larger trail system of the Regional Park from Bull Run Park to Fountain Head (19 miles). I would call easy with moderate for some of the hills if wet.

amazing trail. lots of fun, wildlife, water

very nice trails not well marked at all very easy to get lost.

nice hike. steep in places. cross major roads in two places.

one of the best in the area. only complaint is a heavy road
crossing at times.

great hike, but the trail isn't well marked and it's very easy to get lost and end up on private property

Trail not well maintained and very muddy. Not well marked and goes through the middle of a kids camp. Do not think I will go back, many other better options.

About half the hike is akin Bull Run river...very nice. About 1/3 of the hike is over rocks so just be advised. Went with my dog and he enjoyed it as well!

I loved the history as well as the forested area of the trail. I agree that it was a moderate trail. For a newbie this trail was great for us "beginners". I'll do it again at a later time

Great hike! We could only go .5 mile and then turn back to make it a total mile. (Rehabbing from 2 hip replacements)

Loved it so much! A great trail for beginners and for those who don't want to do anything too strenuous but still want to be surrounded by nature. The trail is pretty easy and fast paced but so beautiful!

Loved it. If you start going south of the visitors center and end passing the stone house you spend the first 4 miles under good cover. The last 1-1.5 miles are in the sun (of shining). Great hike, not to strenuous and full of good historical landmarks and info boards. Highly recommend.
