Hike from Colvin Run Mill to the Potomac
Virginia › Colvin Run Mill Parking Area
Added by The Outbound Collective
This scenic 8-mile hike without much elevation gain also makes for a great trail run.
From the historic Colvin Run Mill, head out of the parking area toward Difficult Run Trail. Follow this trail for roughly four miles as you hike along Difficult Run to the Potomac River.
