Led by local historians Jim Lewis and Brian McEnany, this bus and hiking tour walks alongside the famous Washington-Rochambeau Road that George Washington ordered built in 1781 for transport to the conclusive Battle of Yorktown in the Revolutionary War. See the defacto Mason-Dixon Line in the early years of the American Civil War, Union fortification, encampment areas, hut sites and a rarely seen Crimean Oven. If time allows, we’ll stop at Fairfax Station and learn about its role during the war years. While not difficult, the Wolf Run Shoals hiking trail can be challenging, so wear sturdy walking shoes.
