This civil war site is nestled in the back of a housing addition, if you are coming down Battlefield parkway from Route 7 there is no signage to the park. The one coming from Route 15 is so small that if your not looking for it or know where its at you will miss it as well. Once i got... More

Pleasant walk in the woods where you can see small, little known Union & Southern cemeteries. Also nice lookout on the Potomac. Be careful to check for deer ticks afterwards--also lots of other bugs, so use repellant.

I've been going here for fifteen years. My first interest was the beautiful wildflowers in April. Later as the park concentrated more on the Civil War battle, I learned from the weekend docents. A very peaceful, scenic place now.

We enjoyed finding nice trails where we walked with our dogs and read about various Civil War skirmishes also, all within a few minute drive from where we were staying in Leesburg.,

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
