Hiked this trail on April 20, 2017. Went clockwise from the trail head. After about 3.5 miles (3:15 PM) a storm rolled in. We stood our ground at about 2000 feet near what appeared to be pretty sturdy, uneroded trees. The wind picked up (about 40 MPH) and we watched the trees sway significantly. We kept a watch on nearby trees for any sign of failure. After about 15 minutes the wind died down and the rain began. We continued the hike and reached the river in about 20 minutes. There were many trees (20 - 30) down across the trail (See photos).

Please note that this is the same trail as Loudoun Heights Trail. More reviews can be found under Loudoun Heights.

This was a lot of fun to walk with my sons. The cut stone stairs to the visitors center, though, were hard on the knees

Nice trail. Easy hike

Checked in after some local ☔. The

I did the entire loop yesterday which was exactly 6 miles. Loved it! My legs are definitely feeling it today. It is a nice hike up and you can pick up the pace for a trail run on the way down--just be careful with the rocks. I would definitely go back!

Be aware that the overlook part of the trail is crawling with people.

Great hike to high knob tower, very crowded that day!
