Park at Red Rocks Wilderness Overlook Park on Edwards Ferry Rd. NE. 39.11299, -77.51011

At only 67 acres Red Rock Wilderness Overlook is one of the smallest regional parks along the banks of the Potomac River, and just down the river from Balls Bluff Battlefield. With very little elevation gain this short circuit trail is perfect for young children. At the north section of the park on the banks of the Potomac there are expansive views of the river and Harrison Island, and some of the best views of the river from the cliff section on the parks southern end.

A nice hike close to town. Great for kids but not suitable for strollers. If you are looking for solitude I would not recommend this hike. However, if you want a place close to home with a little bit of up and down and not a lot of time to hike this would work nicely.

Pleasant hike, well marked. Mostly thru the woods on a nice loop but one section along the Potomac to a nice view on the Northeast corner (I think) of the property. Went out on an overcast day with the dogs and didn't see anyone else on the trail. There was only one car in the parking lot when I got there and they were gone when I got back so we apparently hiked in the same direction. Fall or Spring would make this a better hike but if you are in the area this and Balls Bluff are a couple short hikes with nice views to take in.
