Surrounding the Ball's Bluff National Cemetery, this regional park preserves the site of the Battle of Ball's Bluff, the earliest Civil War engagement to take place in Loudoun County. Hiking trails and interpretive signs aid in understanding this important and tragic part of American history.

A beautiful little park with some History to read on your walk. Great place to go with pups but check for tics when done.
have been walking here for years. Go with someone, not a place to go alone.
very easy hike.

I did this one in May on a Thursday. I'm super out of shape and had no issues. It's beautiful, and we didn't pass a single person. Can't wait to go back.

Lots of historical info here. The overlook is nice, good with less foliage so more is able to be seen.

For a suburban trail, there is a great set of trails. The longest trail is 1.8 miles but if you are smart and make a loop with multiple trails, you can hike about 4.5 miles without retracing your steps. The hills are about 50-75 feet vertical climb. My 11 year old daughter, who is not very active, can hike all the trails for about an hour.

For some people, this is easy. For beginning trail runners or hikers, this can be moderate. You decide for yourself based on the 50-75 foot hills.

On the summer weekends, it is busy but not so much that you can't find parking or the trails get backed up. I am able to do my trail running without waiting for others.

Finally, there is NO mountain biking here, only hiking. Enjoy.
