North Anna Battlefield Park encompasses 172 acres and over 6 miles of well-marked trails through oak-hickory forest. The park offers two hiking trails, the Blue Trail (3.8 miles down-and-back) and the Gray Trail (2.04 miles down-and-back). The Blue Trail includes steep hills and uneven terrain making for a more strenuous hike. Both trails offer an overlook of the North Anna River near their turnaround points. In addition to wildlife viewing, history buffs may also enjoy the historic markers and interpretive signs along the trails, which describe the 1864 Battle of North Anna that took place at this site.

Year-round bird residents include a variety of woodpecker and other common species, such as American Robin, Mourning Dove, Blue Jay, Northern Cardinals, Carolina Chickadee, and Tufted Titmice. Other observable wildlife includes White-tailed Deer, Gray Squirrel, and other small mammals.
