Caledon State Park and Natural Area Professional Guide
Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook
"Though not long, the trail at Bush Mill Stream is a valued resource for denizens of Virginia’s Northern Neck. Bring binoculars for birdwatching or a picnic lunch to enjoy on your leisurely descent through mixed forest to the marshy banks of the preserve’s namesake Chesapeake Bay tributary.
Provided it’s open, start your visit to Caledon with a walk through the visitor center, where you’ll find exhibits on the property’s history and the bald eagles that roost along its stretch of Potomac shoreline. The exhibits are housed in the white-clapboard Colonial that Lewis Smoot built in 1910, shortly after inheriting the property. He lived there until his death in 1962, along with his wife, Ann Hopewell Smoot, who donated the property to Virginia in 1974."
