"Red Rock Wilderness Overlook Regional Park, a 67-acre park, sits on a bluff on the banks of the Potomac River. A trail in the northern corner allows access to the river along about half of the park. While the Potomac is not accessible from the eastern half due to steep cliffs that abut the river, this area provides a spectacular view of the Potomac and Maryland. The trails at Red Rock are named for and blazed with colors. The longest loop, the 1.2-mile White Trail, follows the park’s circumference with a jaunt along its largest stream. The other trails intersect the White Trail, which allows you to shorten or lengthen your hike. Before your hike, visit the park’s historic buildings and read the interpretive signs describing their past uses. In 1869 Charles Paxton, a wealthy businessman, bought 765 acres of land along the Potomac in what is now Loudoun County." Read more
