So I tried this trail today. First the point of entry to this "trail" is wrong. When I did finally find a trail map and tried to follow trails, they were not marked. Very disappointed

I did this trail probably 4 to 5 times, ones alone or with my friend Ricky and Harold we are from Peru and this trail doesn't have many reviews so will see I started at the Seneca park at clopper rd then I hiked all to route 28, it took 4 hours on a slow pace, sometimes just watching the scene and listening to the woods.
I saw some dears and ducts along the trail where sometimes there is a river along the trail. One I hiked from the Potomac river to route 28 and was nice too i have seen the trail on summer. autumn fall and winter. It's also good to run but no bikes along the trail not permitted and the park police are always at the park. The lake is very nice too, I have seen people kayaking and fishing once. And is kid friendly watch for poison and once I brought my Doberman.
The park it self it's good with tons of space to walk, nice picnic tables with grill.
There are very nice trees on one of the picnic areas rarely seen.

Lovely trail! A little hard to follow the trail signs. Lots of options for adding distance to your hike with additional side trails.
