Manassas National BattlefieldPark Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"The grasslands and forests of Manassas National Battlefield Park offer a bucolic setting for a day hike that is steeped in Civil War history. A blue-blazed trail stick marks a rerouting of the First Manassas Trail. Veer left off the gravel road, cross the bridle path, and skirt the edge of a field. After a few feet, veer right and descend to cross Young’s Branch via a bridge.

The hiking trail rejoins the gravel road on the other side of Young’s Branch. Instead of crossing the bridge, follow horse trail markers uphill along a dirt road; as you climb, Young’s Branch parallels the road on the right. Watch for a footpath that veers left off the road, passes through field and woodlands, and then loops back to intersect with the dirt road."
