In addition to Shenandoah National Park, there are a number of other areas in Virginia run by the National Park Service, some of which are shown here. See also Great Falls Park and the Blue Ridge Parkway.

Prince William Forest Park is a large park maintained by the National Park Service about 20 miles south of Washington. A campground and many miles of forest trails await local residents looking for a quick escape from the surrounding development. See here for hiking information.
