It’s hard to deny the lure of abandoned buildings in sites, especially when so many of them exist in Virginia. Whether they tell tales of war, industrialism, or altogether abandoned towns, there’s something so compelling about the visual evidence of what once was. One such abandoned place just happens to be situated along a gorgeous hiking trail. If you embark on the Bull Run Meadow Loop, you’ll enjoy gorgeous views in addition to the abandoned grist mill built in 1794. If you’re a fan of Virginia’s history, trails, or both, this trail is a must!
