  • There are LOTS of options available if you just want to go have a picnic on the property, take a short hike (the shortest were around .5 miles) or a long day hike if you're up for it. The views are im...  more »

  • Beautiful view from on the top of the mountain! Easily accessible by car. Dog friendly! Historic...Check schedule for upcoming activities. Excellent place to take your children. Gift shop!
  • This is a great place for a picnic and a hike! The views are stunning, and the trails have varying difficulty levels depending on what the visitors can handle. Just grab a map and enjoy the great outdoors!
  • The old farm installations are quaint. I would have loved to go inside the houses. It looks like sometimes they have blacksmiths working out there. It would be fun to go in that time. I loved the walking trails. They reminded me of being at my grandmother's farm. There are plenty of places have barbeques all over the park. I would recommend it very highly. The view from the mountain on highway 50 is breathtaking.
  • The network of hiking trails leading up the slopes west of the park lead to overlooks with glorious views of the northern Virginia piedmont, and even connect with the Appalachian Trail. On the way up, there is a memorial to CPL Randal Morgan, 11th Virginia Regiment, Continental Army, died 8/16/1777. One of the few remembered by name from those years, he reminds us that Virginia was a battleground where the United States of America was forged in blood, stretching from the colonists to the War Between the States and beyond.
  • I read the review below by Charlotte Slaiman because I was looking up reviews about this park to see if I wanted to go. The most off putting part about the review was the response by the owner (the park). It was snide and condescending. The first sentence from the owner already made me not want to go. I can see why one may think star gazing is available. Other reviewers had listed stargazing as their top reason for going there. I can also understand why people are going to google reviews to get info on the parks instead of the parks' websites. Google reviews is the first thing that pops up when you search "State Parks" and the Virginia state parks websites are not very searchable or user friendly... These sites are not very good. I don't know... but it seems like it would benefit both parties in the future if the Parks tried communicating more through Google Maps/reviews or something similar... NICELY.
