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.

There were many trails to choose from. Grab a map! Great hike.

Nice 2 mile trail that leads to a pretty cool small water fall. It was great for my 2 Goldenretrievers and one of them is just a pup. The only reason I gave it 4 stars is that the end of the trail was blocked with trees and there was no getting around them.

Awesome to learn something new and hangout with friends and family

A nice afternoon hike that is just a short distance from DC. If you have time, the Shenandoahs are only 90 minutes away and so much better, but sometimes you only have an afternoon or just cannot get to the Shenandoahs. This hike is a great close in one in DC with good streams and more solitude than you would expect.

Trail has mis-marking. Overall a great trail though.

saw Mr Beaver when creek was frozen.
started from lot E.

Lovely hike (did the South Valley Trail to the North Valley Trail out and back). Several opportunities to cross the stream on logs which was fun. Would rate easy not moderate, but definitely enjoyable.

Trail is very well maintained, the blazes could be a little easier to find in some spots though. Really enjoyed the hike, no traffic on a Thursday afternoon.

Hiked this about a year ago. Very easy. Bonus-Geocache along the way.

Ok trail. Almost all through woods with about .75 miles on paved roads. Good scenery. Moderate up and downs. Is actually composed of the joining of several other trails. Worth the effort.

The loop is decent. Not much variety in the scenery, but the pets along the creek are nice. Bathroom stop along the way is a plus. Trail was relatively empty on a gray weekend day, which is nice if that's what you're looking for.

On the park map this is called the Quantico Cascades Trail. Park in lot E. At the end of the trail it is definitely cascades - no waterfall - but still beautiful! Easy hike with 3 year old, 5 year old, and dog.

Nice little trail. Park in lot E and then the trail head is well marked then follow the yellow blazes. There is limited parking, maybe 8 spots. The parking area faces an open area with picnic tables so you can lunch before or after your walk. The hike itself is pretty, woods with old growth trees. The cascades are maybe more of a river with rocks but sit and listen to them for awhile before heading back. The are small but beautiful. Somewhat steep right at the end so you can get your heart-rate up a bit. Nice little hike for some quiet forest time.

Not what I was expecting. Definitely wont be back again. The $7 charge was not worth it at all.

Trail is well maintained and easy to hike. I was recovering from a surgery and it offered a good chance for a nice walk and get a light exercise. Lots of shades.

This was a good trail and the scenery was beautiful. The recent rains improved the falls with the cool weather was perfect. Did more than just the falls trail.

I was able to run this trail while visiting family back east this last February. I was a bit disappointed with the falls, but it was the end of winter. Still, I had an enjoyable time, and only saw a handful of people. Was great getting away from the hustle and bustle of Northern VA, and being on the trails is always so much better than being on the roads any day! Considering the location, this is still a really enjoyable outing.

My family and I decided to hike this today. While it was very pretty out, the trail wasn't very well marked- we only found 3 posts with Little Run Loop indicators- definitely need better markers!

Nice and easy. Park at Turkey Run Campground/Education Center and combine with Quantico Falls/Cascade trail for a longer easy out and back.

A nice quiet walk for a warm January day. Beaver is building a dam across the creek at the end of the trail. He came out to say hello while I sat and ate lunch.

For a longer out and back, park at the Turkey Run Education Center and combine the Mary Bird Branch Trail (0.5 mi one way) with this trail.
