A New Birth of Freedom The Battle of Gettysburg was a turning point in the Civil War, the Union victory that ended General Robert E. Lee's second and most ambitious invasion of the North. Often referred to as the "High Water Mark of the Rebellion", Gettysburg was the Civil War's bloodiest battle and was also the inspiration for President Abraham Lincoln's immortal "Gettysburg Address". The park is open daily from 6:00 A.M. to 10:00 P.M. April 1 to October 31, and 6:00 A.M. to 7:00 P.M. November 1 to March 31.

It is paved, marked trail. Walk to the left around the back of the visitor center to access the trail without going inside the building (no backpacks allowed and fee to enter). Wear insect repellant. We returned with four ticks with spray!

There are no words for how amazing this hike is. Historic, beautiful, fun. I could walk it over and over again and learn something new every time.
