Purchased in 1993, and previously known as Karlan State Park, Wilderness Road State Park is one of Virginia's four new state parks. Approximately 200 acres are open for picnicking and hiking, and visitors can enjoy the 10 mile stretch of the Wilderness Road hiking, biking and equestrian trail which passes through the park.

Wilderness Road was carved by Daniel Boone in 1775 to open America’s first western frontier. The late 1870s mansion is available for weddings, meetings and other special functions.

The park is located 5 miles west of Ewing off US 58.
