This is an interesting battlefield to visit, but unlike a lot of other national park battlefields, this one has a lot of popular hiking trails, and the main paring is right next to the museum, so the parking lot is a zoo! They do have...More

Beautiful but busy place to exercise outdoors with the bonus of deer sightings being pretty common! My first visit, a doe and fawn were calmly nibbling on leaves just off the trail. Family and pet-friendly although it's a shame so many people don't pick up...More

While we were in town visiting friends, they took us to the park to go walking up the mountain. You can either walk up the paved road or be more adventurous and take the dirt trail. There were six of us and since my hubby...More

15 minutes or less. If you get off at Rt. 5 it's a pretty quick trip from there. If you need directions, ask me.

That is totally up to you and how interested you are in the details. When we were there it was pouring rain so we did not drive the trail. We did spend a long time at the visitor' center. Very extensive.
