Bristoe 1861-1862 Trail

Welcome to Bristoe Station Battlefield Heritage Park. The park interprets three important Civil war events that took place around Bristoe Station. This trail focuses on the fall 1861 Confederate encampment known as "Camp Jones" and the 1862 Battle of First Bristoe Station/Kettle Run.

The Bristoe 1861-1862 Trail takes you on a 1 1/4 -mile loop through the fields and woodlands. The walk should take approximately one hour to complete. Please be respectful of this hallowed ground and wildlife that abounds at the park. The railroad is still a very active rail line today. Please stay a safe distance from the tracks. Any trespassing on the railroad tracks will be prosecuted. Please follow all park rules and regulations as posted.
