An excellent location for hiking

Get your hiking boots strapped on tight or grab your mountain bike for those who are moderately skilled and prepare for the up and down! This is one of the nicer places around the Virgina Metro area. An excellent location for hiking when you can't head to Old Rag but are interested in doing some hiking for all ages. If you bring a mountain bike, be certain you know how to ride and are in full control; be aware of the safety of you and the others around you. Always yield to the hikers on foot.

It's a beautiful place to hike

It's a beautiful place to hike! The elevation gain can be a bit much, so be mindful of that. Make sure to bring enough water! As for the trail, its nicely marked, and very easily distinguished from the forest. There are places to stick your toes in the river, and have a little rest. It's a very easy, and quick hike. Possibly a nice way to start your day! There is plenty of parking at the start of the trail as well. Get outside, and enjoy yourself!
