Ball's Bluff Battlefield Regional Park Reviews & Ratings
Outstanding battlefield park. Excellent trail along the Potomac River. The trail is difficult in some places. With luck you see a deer. Small National Cemetary is part of the park. Highly recommended.
We hike here pretty regularly. Good trails that are clearly marked and we'll maintained.
This was one of the first battles of the war. It was relatively small - only about 4,000 soldiers involved - but the story is well told through placards placed around the small area of the battle. You'll also see the small cemetery with 24 graves where 54 of the battle's Union casualties are buried. This is the 3rd smallest veterans cemetery in the United States.
Civil War battlefield. Beautiful and serene. Easy access to the trail that leads to Balls Bluff National Cemetery and an amazing view of the Potomac River from the Bluff Overlook. We walked along the river and the towering bluff. In the spring, the ground is covered with spring flowers. I enjoyed seeing a carpet of Virginia Bluebells.
I love this place the river trail have a nice view, easy hike perfect do go with kids, trail dog friendly, park trash free please take your trash with you and enjoy!
