Prince William Forest - Dumfries, Virginia


Today, nearly 20,000 acres make up what is the Prince William Forest.  After making reclamation efforts following the Second World War, what once was a rural farm area with three small towns and a pyrite mine, is slowly being returned to the areas natural state prior to European settlement.  One factor I liked about the this park was the numerous paths throughout the area.  Serving as a sanctuary for the local wildlife or for people looking to get connected with nature to clear one's mind from the bustle of city life for a day or two.
