There’s A Hike In Virginia That Leads You Straight To An Abandoned Village

If you’re an experienced Virginia hiker, you’ve most likely encountered some traces of the past along many of our state’s famed trails.

Yet few people realize that one of our very own parks holds the remains of an abandoned village. And you can access it via a gorgeous forested trail. So the next time you find yourself in northern Virginia, be sure to visit Great Falls Park and take the Matildaville Trail. You’re in for a beautiful hike and a journey back in time.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now: https://www.onlyinyourstate.com/nominate/
