“A mostly ascending trail through thick woods with the chance to see varied wildlife.
— Scott Spencer
River/Creek · Wildlife
Park open dawn to dusk. The trails to the top of Bull Run Mountain are currently closed for recovery. This trail does not go the top.
Singletrack through most of it. The terrain can be a bit uneven with roots showing. The trail is mostly uphill which gets the lungs pumping a little.
From the parking lot, cross the train tracks and bear to the left. Follow the orange blazes. Fern Hollow will take you past the old mill on your left. Head up and continue on the trail until you get to the intersection with the Bull Run Ridge Trail
Flora & Fauna
Squirrels, deer, turtles, frogs, and rattlesnakes! So watch where you put you feet.
I have heard that black bear roam as well.
