My GPS and Trip Advisor do not have accurate directions to this National Park, but after some false turns we made our way there. The Visitors Center was closed for renovations so we read the signs and then started on the walking trails. It is a very interesting battle and they have a lot of information on the signs. The... 更多
A very laid back and well thought out walking trail. The hike starts at a parking lot with a visitors center that was sadly closed. Informational panels are placed along the trail, giving us an idea of the civil war activity. Just a note the trail is moderate on skill level with some steep inclines and uneven surfaces.
We had a great fall afternoon to enjoy the trails and to learn a little about the battle. Trails are well maintained and easy to follow. Steep but easily done on rather side of the bridge. Would be here a lot more often if we lived in the area.
A good effort is being made to preserve this battlefield while keeping it accessible as open land for local residents. Trail maps and markers could be somewhat clearer, but if you have some background on what took place, you'll find the terrain interesting - if not it's still a lovely spot to get outdoors.
As we were dressed for unpaved trails, this battlefield is okay. I think that it lends itself to just come and reflect. It is a good place to just be quiet.
This is the best birding spot of any we have visited in the area. Quiet, lovely vistas, stream areas. Spotted red fox,King fishers, green and great blue heron,cuckoos and many song birds. Our Merlin birding app was not helpful on IDing birds as not enough birders have gone through yet. Visitor center not open even though middle of the afternoon... 更多
Visited this battlefield park to enjoy the walk on unpaved trails. The site is mostly flat with just one fairly steep pitch down to creek level and back up the other side - this short section is paved but the remainder of the paths are gravel. Always heartbreaking to read the details of battles fought at sites like this and... 更多
The only way that you are going to learn about this battlefield is to hike it. To do the whole thing it is about a 5 mile hike. The scenery is gorgeous. The signage could have been a 'bit' more informative...but then again, maybe that is my fault for showing up and knowing nothing about the battle that happened there.... 更多
This battlefield is being developed, but is very interesting to date, including an info center. Fascinating info and very helpful staff. Well worth the visit if you are interested in Civil War subjects, or if you just want a beautiful place for a stroll. Located just off 81.
