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.

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.
