Description

The Quantico Falls Trail offers visitors a fantastic trek through truly beautiful Virginian hardwood forests, ending streamside at the banks of Quantico Creek near its small falls.

Starting at the trailhead off Lake One Road, follow the trail as it traverses the forest, passing a junction with the North Valley Trail before descending moderately to the banks of Quantico Creek. Near the point where the trail reaches the creek, high waters can bring the peaceful sound of gurgling water as it moves through the small, but beautiful falls nearby.

After enjoying a relaxing break along the water's edge, follow the trail south as it parallels the creek before reaching its end in a junction with the North Valley Trail.
