Very nice walk in the woods, and on the way several interpretive exhibits explain the history of the skirmish in which George Washington was involved. I recommend coming here after visiting Fort Necessity nearby, as it gives some context for you to appreciate the historic significance of this place. The trail itself is pretty easy and there is plenty of... More

We almost didn't go, because it was so hot the day we visited, but it was lovely & peaceful. A easy walk, w/ a couple of steep slopes. The nature is amazing.

Having read of the encounter at Jumonville Glen years ago it was a real treat to stand on the site where in fact the French and Indian War began. The hike down to the Glen is not for everybody. It was a hot day when we were there and we worked up quit a sweat coming back up the hill.... More

I contend that this spot, more than Concord, started our path to the American Revolution . We did not go all the way into the Glen but will go back to do that. Seeing it from the observation deck gives one a great feel for what a young George Washington saw and felt that day

The Glen, is a small part of a rather larger history related to the battle that would later take place at Fort Necessity. If you enjoy history and or hiking then check this place out, otherwise skip over it as there is not much more than that to offer. If you are interested with the history and behind the scenes...

The idea of this matches to Fort Necessity as this is where Washington surprised the French and killed the leader causing the French to seek revenge. Must walk to site and was lonely when we were there so didn't want to leave our car but to read the sign. One man was just sitting in his car and something didn't... More

Our family of six hiked up to the cross at Jumonville camp. The 60'-tall cross is visible from OH, WV, and MD, which means that the view from up there is beautiful. Hikers should know that the hike to the cross, although steep, is on a paved trail. We then hiked the trails in the woods. We appreciated that the... More

Almost in our back yard (2 hours) but a friend we met in Canada told us the importance of the shot heard around the world. Lovely area, but must know the history to appreciate.

A small nicely wooded park were George Washington troops meet French troops at the start of the French and Indian War. Nice stop with kids.
