Hiking Caledon State Park, Virginia

Caledon State Park is a National Natural Landmark located on Virginia’s Northern Neck Peninsula in King George County. The park lies along the Potomac River, and includes many old growth trees in its upland forest areas as well as marshes along the river. The area is well known for Bald Eagles and many other birds.

Caledon was also a colonial era plantation established by the Alexander family, founders of the nearby City of Alexandria. There was also a small port operated on the Potomac River at Boyd’s Hole that remained in operation up until the Civil War. Many colonial period buildings remain on the property.

    Great shark's tooth. It still doesn't quite feel like fall here in southeast NC, unfortunately. But I can feel the fall air in this video!!!

    Hello (waving from the MD side of the Potomac). Caledon is further north than I thought. I'll need to check that one out! I'm really bad at finding sharks teeth, no matter how long I look, I've never found any.

    Nice & flat. That Hiking Guy would appreciate these trails and he wouldn't pant so bad. Another nice spot you have reviewed for us. My kind of place. You need a little traveling fishing rod to throw a bait out every now & then. Cool shark tooth.
