The Old Stone Bridge crosses Bull Run in the Manassas National Batlefield Park in Manassas, Virginia. This area is 15 minutes away from our home and whenever we feel like a good walk, we'll sometimes head for one of the hiking trails here. For anyone interested in Civil War history, the bridge was destroyed during the Battle of First Manassas on July 21st, 1861. This was the first major land battle of the American Civil War. Some years later a new bridge - apparently similar to the original design - was built on the site of the old bridge.
Immediately after we crossed we turned right and walked along the path at the side of the river (Bull Run).
There are many trees that have fallen into the river. It was a lovely walk that took us along its banks, then up a fairly steep hill through a wood that led into an open field of tall grass and wildflowers. The trail is a loop that eventually took us back to our car.
