Very nice hike. Close to my place in Reston. The trails were a bit muddy from all the rain that we got over the last couple of days. Walked along the Potomac River and back out again. The loop was just under 3.5 miles. I'd definitely do it again!

Stunning day for mid December. Car park full and lots of folk on the main trails. Further afield quiet and delightful. Recommended.

This area is great for a short day hike for all ages. There are a few different paths you can take depending on your time and ability. Great path along the Potomac with a good of it.

A great trail for families with young kiddos. Nice scenery. Some good hills; but, nothing too intense. We will definitely return when we have more time to explore.
