The Civil War Battle that Saved Washington, D.C. In the summer of 1864, General Jubal Early led Confederate forces towards Washington, D.C. and threatened to capture the capital city. On July 9, Union troops under General Lew Wallace met Early's forces on the banks of the Monocacy. At Monocacy National Battlefield, visitors can experience this and other stories of the past in a landscape that has changed little since the 19th century.

Fun little trail that is marked okay. We took the long loop that went along the Monocacy River counterclockwise. There is an industrial zone across the river. Half way through the hike we came across a farm with many cows. The trail then goes up a small hill with a switchback incline then comes down to the parking area where we started. There is a historical farm house, picnic tables, and a cannon next to the parking area with a nice view of the farm. I docked the trail two stars because of the industrial zone and the proximity to the highway that offers unwanted noise. The trail is moderately travelled on the weekend. Cheers.

Nice trails, not a lot of people, Worthington Farm tails is hilly

Short trail, but it's great to go around a few times.

Nice trail, can get really muddy after a lot of rain though.

you know what'd be even better about this place? being able to enter the house.

i must've tried every single window; apparently they've got locks.

also the hill close by? very nice.

Easy walk with boardwalk through the marshy/wooded area. Nice creek to hop in if you so desire. Gambrills Mill manor is also a really cool spot to picnic.

Civil war historic spot. Good for walking around. Good spot to take kids/dogs.

Pretty little loop. I love just going there to sit by the Monocacy river.
