There are five hiking trails here that are open year round, that take you through environmentally sensitive marshlands and picturesque wooded areas. A series of interconnected loops, the network of hiking trails at Caledon State Park and Natural Area is easily customized to a shorter loop or figure eight. This loop descends through oaks to wind along a riparian floodplain then makes an undulating return over beech-studded hillsides.

The Boyd's Hole Trail is the 6th trail and leads to the Potomac River. The Boyd's Hole trail is open from October 1 through March 31 and is closed the remainder of the year.

Directions:

-Near Fredericksburg, VA take the the Falmouth exit off of I-95.

-Take Rt 17 over Rt 1 where it changes to Butler Rd. Follow this road straight. Eventually the road turns into Rt 218.

-Travel this road for about 23 miles.

-Caledon will be on your left side. Bordering Rt. 218 and continuing north toward the Potomac River for about 3/4 mile, the Educational–Recreation Area includes the hiking trails.
