Prince William Forest Park

The Virginia Delights series looks for hikes within 2 hours of RVA and at least 7 miles in length. Prince William Forest Park is a 15,000 acre forested oasis, located 35 miles south of Washington, DC.  We will follow the trails along the south Quantico Creek and then loop back through the north section park.

The return time is approximate.  If you have plans that require you to be back in Richmond at a specific time, please communicate this prior to carpooling with someone, or consider choosing a different hike. 

Optional winery stop at Potomac Point Vineyards on the way back if there is interest. Also optional is a brief stop for a bit and check out the new Widewater State Park for a future kayak trip.

    Wasn’t this originally posted as a ten mile hike?

    Yes. I orig posted that I calculated loop around park was 10 miles from the map,
    pending actually hiking it to confirm.

    I scouted hike this past Sat and it is a solid 13 miles.
    Apologies if this changes things in a way that is not good for you.
    It is really a super nice place.

    Also note that there is a fee per car to enter or need a National Parks pass.

    Hi everyone. This will be my first trek with the cvt, so just to not start off as a total fool, whereabouts in the food lion parking lot should I look for y’all? Can’t say I’ve ever been to the Ashland food lion so any gathering tips , type of vehicles, departure time etc much appreciated.

    Steve H I noticed that there were six people listed as attending this hike and the event said there was seven spaces with none available. If a space comes available I’m interested in going.

      Paul – One person on the list has a guest, so it’s seven. And I believe there are some guests signed up via EventBrite.

    Sorry, we are remodeling the kitchen and putting on solar panels, so I’ll be stuck at home working the next few weekends.
