Native American Heritage Trail opens in King George County with historical markers, geocache puzzles

KING GEORGE COUNTY, Va. (WRIC) — King George County has opened its Native American Heritage Trail, a self-guided driving tour highlighting the history of the Rappahannock and Patawomeck tribes in the region.

The trail was made in a collaboration between King George County, the University of Mary Washington Historic Preservation Department, and the Rappahannock and Patawomeck tribes.

The trail features seven informative signs and ten geocache puzzles located at historical sites across the county.

The trail signs were written by students in the department of historic preservation at the university in collaboration with the Rappahannock Tribe and the Patawomeck Indian Tribe of Virginia.

The county said the Native American Heritage Trail is a free, self-guided driving tour. Visitors can download a map and guide brochure at the county’s website or pick one up at the Revercomb Administration Building outside the board room, located at 10459 Courthouse Drive.

Visitors can use the map to navigate the trail signs and geocache puzzles. The brochure has a mystery message that can only be discovered by solving all ten of the geocache puzzles.

Those who solve its message get a prize, but those who only have time for one or two of the geocache puzzles can find small treasures hidden inside each geocache.
