Why not bike to the Ox Hill Battlefield Park event on Saturday

Fairfax County is commemorating the 150th anniversary of the only major Civil War battle in the County, the Battle of Ox Hill, on Saturday between the hours of 10am and 5pm.

Ox Hill Battlefield Park is located at 4134 West Ox Road, Fairfax, not far from the county government center and Fair Oaks Mall. Bike access isn't great but there is a paved trail in front of the park on West Ox Rd that extends south to the Fairfax County Parkway Trail and north to the relatively new paved trail along West Ox Rd. Activities include:
  • 10:00 AM - Presentation of 16 state flags and speeches by local officials
  • 1:00 PM Federal City Brass Band concert, musket and cannon firings
  • 4:00 PM Battle of Ox Hill speeches, wreath laying at the Monuments
There is bike parking at the park, thanks in part to a FABB member who, a while back, worked with Park Authority officials to ensure that those people who do travel to the park by bike have a place to park.
