No parking area so you just have to pull off road & find a place. This starts you at top of the mountain & descends to bottom. Snow covered when I went & with rocky parts didn’t feel like going all the way down. Nice trails. Well marked & easy to follow. Great overlook. Plan on returning to find the waterfall after winters over. Had a nice hike.

Nice easy trail. I enjoyed the historical information provided along the way.

The waterfall was definitely the payoff on this hike. The trail was rocky and there were a couple of rock scrambles.

Hoping someone can help me out. I’m trying to hike here but cannot find the parking area?

Nice walk. Beautiful views. Many dogs.

Beautiful winter hike with mountain laurels, pine forest, a nice rocky ravine, a waterfall, natural springs, a shelter, and a fantastic overlook. It was surprisingly crowded for a winter day but we were able to find quiet. There were unfortunately two jacked up off-road Jeeps climbing up a rocky ravine (probably trespassing) that made a lot of noise and nasty exhaust. Note that the start of the yellow-blazed Frye trail is located on the power line cut, not quite as shown on the map.

Great walk for a nice crisp fall day! There's so much neat history here. I loved the creek with the bridge. Would love to come back without my whiny six year old to get to do the entire loop.

Great hike today, little windy but good.

Great local place for hiking, biking, or just to get out. Main trail is stone covered for biking & level. Has wooded paths off main trail through woods which are nice. Definitely recommend this place & will return myself.

My husband and I only made it 3 miles today. It was super rainy and we made a solid attempt but I was over the sopping wet clothes after 1.5 miles. The trail itself was extremely rocky. Also, personally I prefer an up hill climb for the first half of a hike and down hill on the way up.. this trail was the opposite of that. It was very beautiful though and we enjoyed looking at the unfamiliar vegetation and wildlife.

Awesome hike with my son. Beautiful overlooks and the waterfall is much more impressive in person than what photos suggest! Hike was not bad until about mile four coming back out. The last mile was tough but soooo worth it!

Walked out to the waterfall about 2 miles from the parking area. The trail is rocky so a little slow going. The waterfall was awesome due to the amount of rain this year. I would defiantly do it again. The white blaze trade can be a little hard to spot on your way back so keep any eye out for it.

There’s a good view of nature there’s Geese. It’s five miles but it’s easy and beautiful. There’s also maps and you can learn about the animals seen on the Green Circle Trail.

Very nice place
Took my new puppy and we both enjoyed

I did this hike today and it was great, love the waterfalls and the view is amazing! it's very rocky and was slippery today from all the rain! I took my 3 liter bladder I ran out while I was half way there sooo consider a lot of water if you are doing it in summer time! ♡ and remember to keep your dogs on a leash.

We considered this an enjoyable hike and had lunch at the waterfall, near the head of Laurel Run, which was flowing well due to all the rain lately. Appears to be lightly traveled. Time back out from the Waterfall was about 1hr and 25min.

Great place to for a run/peaceful walk. Obviously historical. Mostly flat trail, going through fields canopied tree lines, woods, and over a small creek. I got the vibe, of it being a place mainly locals would go to for exercise. Not too exiting but a great place for a peaceful walk.

Well marked tails very rocky great hike

Loved the trail and the views. It was easy to find. However I would say this is a bit more of a difficult hike due to the steep grade and some rocky terrain.

Wonderful hike that isn’t too strenuous. There are some rocky bits that are hard to traverse when wet (it was raining).

Easy trail but I love this trail. The history is incredible with this trail. good for kids and dogs ...

Great trail if you have kids! Super easy and convenient.

Great short hike with waterfall and a some gorgeous views to the west.

The Winchester Green Loop hasn't been completed and ends at mile 4.63 and is actually going to be 6.31 miles in length. The trail is well-marked and follows city sidewalks much of the way. It passes many points of interest, such as Oldtown Winchester, Abram's Delight, and the Abrams Creek Wetlands.

We were able to complete the unfinished loop by using the sidewalks on Jubal Early on the way back to our parking point near Shenandoah University.

Upon the trail's completion, this will be a fun, quick, and easy urban hike.

This was a beautiful and amazing hike for anyone of all ages. Very dog friendly!

great easy trail with a lot of options. however the bridge is out due to storms, effectively cutting the park in half.
