Nice walking trail. Too bad the visitor center is closed during the winter, as it looks like an interesting place to visit.

Easy mowed grass trail through waist high prairie grasses and through the creek and woods. Lots of informational signs on the trail, with crank power generated audio as well as text. The Visitor Center appears to be closed mid fall through mid-spring and only open during the summer. Check for hours before you go. The trails in Oct 2018 did not seem to align with what is shown on AllTrails, so check the official website and get a current map.

Passed through again touring several civil war sites in this area. Nice visitor center, well preserved site. It is a destination especially if you hit the lessor known sites in close proximity.
