I wish I had had more time to visit the park. It was hot and some attractions we overlooked due to the heat. Maybe on winter. The park itself was nice. There is a driving tour map available. The scene at Bull Run was beautiful...More

Have taken our dog there several times for long walks. Beautiful area. It was in the fall of last year and the leaves were changing colors. Absolutely delightful day.

Visited the battlefield and had a free group 40 mins walk around the battlefield site with a very knowledgeable ranger who fought the battle to life in a very easy to understand way. I would highly recommend a visit.

There is a movie that is very interesting in the visitors center. It is a great place to walk. There is an old house you can watch a 3d movie in. It never gets boring because it is a huge park with lots of trails.

I put in my GPS hiking trails near me and this came up. I was surprised when I pulled up, I took the tour and watched the short video. Then me and my pup walked the battle field grounds!

Lots of wide open space, Short and long trails so you can choose how much exercise you want to get. Not flat but rolling hills.

No entry fee. I walked the grounds by myself with the free NPS handout (you'll have to ask for one from the VC desk)
