#26 of 31 in Trails in Virginia
Playground Hiking Trail
The park is about 310 acres that lie astride the Wilderness Road, a route carved by Daniel Boone in 1775. The route, which followed a buffalo trace, opened America’s first western frontier. Most notable in the park are the Karlan Mansion built in the 1877, a state-of-the-art visitor center and Martin's Station, a replica of a colonial frontier fort that was near this site in 1775.

  • It was extremely fun and it was very easy to learn the history on display there. The Martin's Station fort was very well made and had very nice workers. The visitor center was very nice and clean. Its annual reenactments are very fun and helpful with learning.
  • Beautiful views! Nice picnic areas and bike trails. Martin station is a wonderful place to see, especially when the rein-actors are there!
  • Beautiful park and very well maintained. They always seem to have some sort of activity going on, especially for the little ones.
  • Family Friendly. Very nice play areas for the kids with big events for almost every major holiday.
  • They have Buffalo! However, that's about it. There is a nice little fort and park area and parking is pricey. Small one trail hiking, not much but a nice little find.
