With 37 miles of hiking trails, Prince William Forest Park has the most extensive hiking trail network in Northern Virginia. Where else can you hike an 18 mile loop and get back to Washington, DC for dinner? Visit our online Hiking Guide to click your way through each of our trails. Or you can call or stop by the visitor center to have a Park Ranger guide your way. Whether its a short 1/2 mile loop or a 2 day excursion, Prince William Forest Park has something for everyone.
Things To Do
Get to know a part of Northern Virginia that has all but disappeared. Hike 9 miles along the South Fork Quantico Creek, bicycle down an old fire road to the remains of the Cabin Branch Pyrite Mine, spend the night in a historic cabin, fish in one of the lakes, and arise the next morning to some of the best bird watching in the area - all within Prince William Forest Park's 15,000 acre woodland.
With 37 miles hiking trails, 21 miles of bicycle-accessible roads and trails, 4 campgrounds, and over 100 cabins, recreational opportunities are endless. During your stay, you can attend one of our summertime Saturday night campfire programs or visit the visitor center to talk to a park ranger and watch the park movie.
