A very interesting and informative trail, especially for the history buff.

Lee's Woods Interpretive Trail is an easy to moderate hike. A self-guided booklet is available at the park office. The interpretive stations are marked by a post with a white number. This historic walk takes the visitor on the same ground where General Robert E. Lee once ordered a blockade of the Potomac, hoping to cut off water access to Washington, D.C.

Directions: From Washington, D.C., Leesylvania State Park is in southeastern Prince William County. It is approximately 20 miles south of Washington, D.C. and 20 miles north of Fredericksburg. From I-95, take Rippon Landing Exit 156. Go east on Rt. 784 to U.S. 1. From U.S. 1, Rt. 610 (Neabsco Road) and head east two miles. Follow the park road to the last parking lot. This historic trail begins next to the amphitheater.
