The section of trail that runs along Sudley road and Thornberry property tends to be muddy, the park does have boarded paths over some parts but not all muddy parts.
You start of on part of the old railroad path, then come to the fork of the loop. If you stay straight, you'll continue along side the railway pay until you get to the cliff where the tracks were suppose to cross Bull Run. The trail will go left down a step hill and go along Bull Run until it reaches Sudley ford. About halfway down the trail while beside Bull Run, on the right Little Bull Run runs into Bull Run and on the left you'll start seeing what used to be the Thornberry property. Once you get to the Sudley Ford the trail turns left and continue around the Thornberry property and back toward the fork near the beginning of the trail.
