Description

This trail is good no matter which way you travel it. On one end, you have Great Falls Park and its trail system. On the other end, you have Occoquan with its restaurants and boutique shops. Because this trail goes through a busy and heavily populated county, there are tons of locations through which you can get on and off the trail. In fact, my guess is that you can be on this trail and not even know it. There are plenty of places to grab a drink if you need it as well.

The big plus is that there are also sections where you'll have no idea you are in such a populated area.

Sometimes trail markings are not present or slightly confusing where they are needed, but the trail is mostly navigable.

Not great. Poorly marked. it's very much a "make your own way" kind of trail. I started by Great falls and headed south. 6mi — 1h 10m

Awesome Trail with some difficult areas but you can easily get off and walk with it.
