Stone Bridge Loop Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"The 1.4-mile Stone Bridge Loop Trail gives you and your kids a historical perspective on both battles and information about the natural history of the area, including the plants and animals that create the meadow, forest, and stream ecosystems in the park.

The Kids in Parks program, sponsored by the Blue Ridge Parkway Foundation, offers four brochures to educate kids: trees, birds, nature tales, and activities such as a game of hide-and-seek and a cell phone interpretation guide. At each point of interest, a sign indicates which number to press after you call the telephone number. Green is the adult explanation, and orange is the children’s.

The hike begins on a paved trail over Stone Bridge and continues on compact soil along Bull Run and the meadows of the battlefield—which can be hot and sunny on a summer day—and finally on a boardwalk through wetlands. Along the first section of the loop, there are multiple people’s choice trails and access points to Bull Run. The trail is marked at intersections but is not blazed."
