Hiking for kids

Looking for a nice place for a hike that's kid (9-12) friendly...say anywhere that's 45-60 minutes from Purcellville.

A cool food place nearby is a must!

Any ideas?

Brunswick or Point of Rocks path along the river.  To avoid the mud, I walk at Algonkian.  Morvern Park in Leesburg is really nice and you can walk up the mountain.


Always wishin' I was fishin'

Thanks...trying to avoid mud. Morvern Park is a good lead, thanks.

Heard about Bear's Den from Big D.

Back side of Old Rag

Balls Bluff

Or if you really want no mud, side walk like trails around Coutryside

Hardy har har! We ain't afraid of a little mud...just don't want all muddy conditions. BTW, Ashburn Village is totally connected by trails. This is where I do my 4-5 mile walks.

The Appalachian Trail crosses Route 7 just after Weather Mountain (west of Bluemont).

Just looked at the Bear's Den trail and it runs right on the Ap Trail. Thanks!

I'm a fan of Maryland Heights.  https://www.nps.gov/hafe/planyourvisit/hikes.htm
I did that with my dad around that age.  Great view of Harper's Ferry.
