  • This is a lovely park to visit and hike. There is interesting history of the Washington Monument, as well as the Civil War here. It's a pretty steep uphill hike, and a tough climb up the stairs of the tower. The view from the top is amazing, and worth the climb. There are connections to the Appalachian trail within the park as well.
  • Washington Monument State Park is another great local park in Washington County. Dedicated to our first president George Washington. Beautuful area, great hiking right on the Appalachian Trail, and the monument as well as the amazing ciew is quite a sight to see. Plenty of areas to stop and rest, bathrooms and water. Must see and take in another piece of our national and local history.
