Current Volunteer Opportunities
Manassas National Battlefield Park contains more than 40 miles of trails, over half of which are open to horseback riding. The park works closely with two volunteer organizations to perform routine trail maintenance, combat erosion, and address sustainability issues. Hiking trails at the park are maintained with the assistance of the Blue & Gray Trail Crew, and bridle trails are maintained with the assistance of the Battlefield Equestrian Society.
To view additional volunteer opportunities available nationwide, go to www.volunteer.gov/gov.
Did You Know?
During the war, the North generally named a battle after the closest river, stream or creek and the South tended to name battles after towns or railroad junctions. Hence the Confederate name Manassas after Manassas Junction and the Union name Bull Run for the stream Bull Run.
