The Lee's Woods Trail Is a moderate difficulty trail, which is accessible from the road near the entrance to the picnic area. This interpretive trail loops through historic ground including the sites of the homesteads of the Fairfax and Lee families, the Lee family cemetery and gardens, and Free Stone Point. As the trail loops out to Free Stone Point you are walking the same ground where, during the Civil War, General Robert E. Lee once ordered the blockade of the Potomac, hoping to cut off the North's water access to Washington D.C. Free Stone Point offered an elevated position where a battery of 32 pound cannons could be positioned. At the point, you can see a cannon and imagine the deadly plunging fire the South could rain down upon approaching ships.

Fantastic trail for the local (Woodbridge, VA) area. Lots of history, the coolest of which is Freestone Point, an old Civil War era battery. There is still one cannon left and all of the original earthworks. Pretty light traffic, even on weekends when the park itself is crowded. Great for running too (I usually bring my dogs).
