Prince William Forest Park

Prince William Forest Park has closed to motor vehicles due to the coronavirus, the National Park Service announced Wednesday.

The park remains open for hiking on trails and biking on designated roads, according to a NPS alert.

Visitors can access the park at the park’s Joplin Road entrance and at the Pleasant Road entrance off Dumfries Road.

“All parking will be outside the park. We can not recommend any location for you to park while visiting,” the NPS statement noted. “It is the responsibility of the visitor to have permission or know applicable laws where they park.”

Fees at the park have been waived until further notice. The visitor center, restrooms, cabins and campgrounds are closed.

Facilities are closed at Manassas National Battlefield Park and Falls Park, but parking lots remain open.
