A nice hike in the woods

Trails were well maintained and there were lots of additional loops to make the hike longer if you chose to do so.

The BRCES is a beautiful and peaceful place to go especially if you like scenery that's free of skyscrapers and apartment buildings.

Great park to hike and see wildlife. Always a good place for birding too. Great trail systems for long hikes or short hikes.

Tons of walking trails, camping with permission. Join US Trail Ride (.com) and have access to the miles of horseback riding trails.

Located only 30 +/- minutes from the heart of Loudoun County, you can hike this lovely open area that features tree cover, open fields, crossing streams over stones and over small bridges, farmland. Some elevation too. Highly recommended!

BRCES is not only a big open hiking area, but it's beautiful trails meander through an old farmstead, showing the area's history and landscape. My family loves the quiet and peace of the place and the hike can be done by my young sons.

Want to hike through the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains, crossing log bridges and seeing the ruins of abandoned farm houses, then BRCES is the place for you. Visit in the spring and watch the wildflowers and daffodils bloom amidst the ruins in the woods.
