not so fun

Peaceful but lots of trash

Saturday, March 15, 2014

Ruins are fun to explore. This park feels somewhat forgotten, and there were many elements about it that seemed rather creepy.

There are a lot of barely-used trails here so, despite its small size, there's a lot of potential to explore.

Great views of DC and VA.

Easy hike for children, though perhaps best to avoid some of the more overgrown areas.

The Potomac washes up a lot of trash on the beach, which can be either sad or interesting, depending on your mindset.

5 stars for the great civil war ruins and cannons!
