Potomac Heritage National Scenic Trail Network Expands

By SOP newswire

Stafford County, VA (December 2006) - Based on an application by Stafford County, NPS Regional Director Joe Lawler recognized three locally managed trails as segments of the growing Potomac Heritage National Scenic Trail network:

~          the Aquia Creek Water Trail, a connection to the Potomac River Water Trail (designated a National Recreation Trail in 2006);

~          a trail that explores Government Island, a 17 acre site where stone was quarried for the White House and the U.S. Capitol; and

~          the planned five-mile Falmouth-Ferry Farm Trail, which will connect three National Historic Landmarks in the Rappahannock River corridor. 

All of the related sites contribute to an understanding of the national significance of the Trail corridor.  For more information, see http://www.gostaffordva.com/stafford-visitorguide.cfm or contact Don Briggs, PHNST Office, at don_briggs@nps.gov or 304-535-4016.
