Hike along the same trails that soldiers marched and battles were fought. Read about the people and that the battles that were fought. There are placards throughout the trail that describe the battles as they unfolded. 

Located about 40 minutes from D.C. just off I-66 in Manassas, VA. Henry Hill is the starting point and headquarters that can lead you to multiple trails ranging from 1-5 miles depending on the route you choose here. Ample parking at HQ as well as clean restrooms. Tours are available here.

Rolling hills provide beautiful overviews of the countryside. It is an easy hike to get the whole family involved in your outdoor adventures. 

For more information check out the National Park Service website here.

Easy Walk - Little/No Shade

Easy to walk around, check out some historical buildings, and ponder what took place there. It's more of an area to stroll around though we didn't go far out on the walk, so not sure what lie ahead over the next hills. But nice leisurely walk. We did 1.5 mile loop. But there's little to no shade so in summer it's hot and be careful of too much sun.
