Was expecting a visitor's center but only found a small parking lot off of the main highway with placards explaining what happened at this site. I took a walk around the grounds, reading various informational signs (only took about 20 - 30 minutes total) but...More

The significance is probably savored only by the true history buff but even if you know nothing about the Civil War it has a beautiful walking trail. There are plenty of signs and markers so you will gain a greater understanding of what happened. It...More

It nice that the Chantilly battle field (Ox Hill) if you are Union has been preserved but it is very small. It shows the battle, aftermath of Second Manassas, that saw incredible fighting in a violent rainstorm where two Union generals died, II Stevens and...More

Nice little battle field park. very short trail. markers do a nice job of explaining the battle, which was the largest battle fought in Fairfax VA. parking has about 10 spaces. worth a quick :15 to :20 review of the park.

The park is small. It has a paved path in a circuit. Stations to explain the battle and the historical significance are clear and interesting. The walk is short and a lot if people walk their dogs here. It's in an unexpected location. But easily...More

Untouched battlefield. The history of this place is truly impressive. The land is up kept nicely and there is room to play with kids or a pet. Easy to miss, if you live close but is a worth while stop.
