It may seem strange that a large Civil War battlefield sits smack in the middle of one of the fastest growing counties in the country. But Loudoun County, Virginia is filled with history related to this war, and one can see it very well at Balls Bluff Battlefield. The small cemetery containing markers of mostly unknown soldiers who died in... More

The Battle of Ball's Bluff doesn't show up in a lot of history books, but it was still an important engagement. The area is much better than it was only a few years ago. A lot of time, attention and money has been put into maintaining this park. Too bad for the need for more houses into the area. It's... More

Beautiful now, but certainly was not at one time. Interesting part of our history. Too bad there are so many other buildings/homes build around the battlefield.

We came here with family - four adults and one child, and enjoyed a nice walk while our neice collected various leaves and rocks to play with along the way. The trails are fairly well maintained and marked and it is an easy walk, even for people with a bad backor or bum knee. There weren't a ton of descriptive... More

We spent an hour and a half here mostly for exercise. There are a half dozen or so walks - all color coded and well marked. The trails are though a nice deciduous forest with lots of white tail deer. We were there after several days of rain so lots of mozzies but we kept moving and therefore no problem.... More

Very nice and kept up. Great trails and a great view. Needs more interpretive signs however. Important Civil War site often overlooked by history

I am a local, I know, a rarity. I am also a Living Historian, and have participated in Historic events at Ball's Bluff. I HATE that this sacred area is surrounded by expensive but cheaply made suburban houses. It deserves old stone houses and rail fences! That being said, make sure you go when a volunteer will give a tour.... More

Compact Civil War battlefield. The free guided tours on Saturdays and Sundays are a must. The tour guides are very knowledgable.

Facilities very lacking but nice walk - interesting history and I'm really surprised it still exists. See it soon before townhouses over take it!

My husband and I have been here twice this week with our dog. Great hills, good workout and amazingly marked trails. You will definitely get your sweat rollin' if you hike this at a good pace. Thank you, Leesburg, Parks-n-Recreation! What a fun discovery!
