Manassas National Battlefield Park encompasses nearly 5,100 acres of land and includes more than 40 miles of hiking trails. The park has developed a series of loop trails that traverse key areas of the First and Second Manassas Battlefields. Many of these recommended routes include trailside interpretive markers describing the battle action that occurred and highlighting the experiences of soldiers and civilians alike.
Opportunities exist for both short and extended hikes, so options are available to fit your interest and ability. Before setting out on your hike, stop by the park visitor center to obtain a trail map. Or download the park's Hiking Trail Map.
