Along the trail were placards marking what was going on during the battle which was nice to help visualize how it all happened! The battlefield itself was different as I grew up near Gettysburg and am used to the high number of monuments there, but it was refreshing to visit a battlefield that had less of those and more of a natural appearance.

Easy trail, but be careful with the poison ivy. Some areas are narrow. There are several muddy spots due to all the rain. Trail well marked.

I was expecting a lot more historical sites. The trail just bad plaques that stated what happened in the surrounding woods. It's an easy trail for kids and dogs but I wasn't entirely impressed with it.

Nice trail. Well marked. Mostly flat. Visitors center has a well presented display of the local civil war history.

Nice little 3.6 mile trail great for a leisurely walk with pups or kids, nice little jaunt for a trail run too. Clearly marked, watch your step for roots when running. Enjoy!

Very easy trail! If you are a runner, this trail is perfect for that.

Makes for an pleasant run on flat terrain challenged only by a few roots and other tripping possibilities and interaction with vehicular traffic is slight but when reaching pavement attention to fast-driving locals and distracted tourists doing motor tours is essential. Too brief and flat for a walking workout but the history is of course the high point, and its interesting to note that Stonewall Jackson suffered his fatal wound near the visitor center by the parking lot where the loop begins. Very good interpretive signage at center and various points around the park.
