The story about the battle at Gaines' Mill is sobering. It is hard to visualize that as beautiful and peaceful as it is now. The park is in excellent shape. You have to get off the beaten path to find it. But it is worth the effort.
Nice walking trail that is well marked and easy to follow. Pinned in by private property so watch the signs. There is an extended walk that is supposed to lead to a view but the bushes were so high nothing could be seen.
