Dark Hollow Falls Trail

This is a great hike and a terrific workout that I was not truly prepared for. The difficult return uphill was a challenge but the beauty of the falls made it totally worth it. Had there not been so many places to stop and rest along the way, making the steep climb would've been more than I could do. Remember to take plenty of water, the short 1.4 miles round trip and cool mountain temps can be misleading.

This was our first time up this trail. I'm a photographer and am doing some scouting for some special photos I'm about to do. This was a great hike. It's considered moderate and I'd put it at the borderline of that and easy. My 6 year old had 0 issues on it whatsoever and LOVED it. This has now become a quick favorite of our's.

Great trail. Have done it many times with my father and solo. I have a house in Luray off Page Valley and it is a short drive to the parking area . Plan on sleeping on top of the tower this summer .

Marys Rock Trail

AWESOME TRAIL!!! 360 views! I climbed it from the Meadow Spring parking lot which allowed for a fun scramble at the end to reach Mary's Rock. View is just as good as Old Rag except there were no people! Excellent hike! Do it! :-)

This was not a very challenging trail at all. It's more a nature walk, easily marked with placards explaining the trees, gentle rolling hills, boring scenery, etc.

If you like more challenging trails with rock scrambles, etc, then avoid this trail. It's more suitable for mountain biking.

I actually really liked this trail, as a photographer there was plenty to see and do. It is nice and short and some beautiful falls and rapids. I found the trail nice and open, but it wasn't busy when I was there due to the rain. This is definitely not an Easy trail as it is a fairly steep climb coming back up. I'm not in the best of shape right now and didn't have a problem though. I found plenty of areas to stop on the way up to take a photos while I caught my breath.

I didn't do this trail yet, however there is a $2.00 parking fee. I am not sure if there is another area to park and avoid the small fee.

Bull Run - Occoquan Trail

THis was my trial growing up, i love this place! its a little cold in the winter, but still beautiful for trail running or, if you have the whole day, hiking from end to end. If you have the chance, check out Fountainhead Park at the southern end of the trial, you can rent kayaks fairly inexspensively and can go explore all up and down the Occoquan River.

We utilize this trail in the winter months when we do dry-land mushing with our huskies. Gentle grade and scenery that can't be beat. Places to picnic - tables and benches, great trestle bridges and a few tunnels. One of the best - upkeep is wonderful.
