Prince William Parkway

MANASSAS, Va. – It may not be Virginia’s Skyline Drive but Prince William County’s main thoroughfare is now beaming with fall color.

Bright orange, red, yellows, and green leaves adorn the trees along a five-mile stretch of Prince William Parkway between Woodbridge and Manassas. This largely undeveloped land this portion of the parkway traverses makes it a great scenic route this time of year.

Fall foliage usually peaks in this area about the end of October, making it one of the last portions of the state to experience bright fall foliage.

For drivers looking to get more than just a commuter’s view of fall leaves, nearby Prince William Forest Park offers a haven of natural beauty and history tucked away from the suburban sprawl of the Potomac Communities.

The park’s main entrance is just off Interstate 95 on Joplin Road in Triangle and is open 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. every day.
