Before man traveled this way, the wild animals that inhabited this area made a trail through the grassland and woods which they followed to reach new grazing areas. Bison and deer created and followed the path seeking fresh grass for food, followed by the wolves and wild cats who preyed on them. Smaller animals were also plentiful. The bison have disappeared and the bobcats and bears have retreated to the more sparsely populated Blue Ridge Mountains in the western part of Loudoun County. However, the deer survived and may even be seen close to man's towns and suburban developments.
