Spend The Perfect Day Outdoors At Prince William Forest Park, Virginia’s Little-Known National Park
When you think of national parks in Virginia, it’s likely Shenandoah National Park that comes to mind. Or perhaps Great Falls Park. But fewer people realize that the Old Dominion is home to 22 national parks! Of course, the term “park” can refer to a trail, seashore, cemetery, or monument. Today, we’d like to add a beautiful national park to your radar: Prince William Forest Park. Located in Triangle, Virginia, this hidden sanctuary is just a stone’s throw from Washington, D.C. However, when you visit, you’ll feel completely immersed in the natural landscape. Here’s how you can spend the perfect day outdoors at Prince William Forest Park.
