A nice loop trail. This is part of the National Battlefield. It is worth watching the short video and talking w/ the rangers at the visitor center prior to hiking. You learn a lot and it adds to the experience of hiking in a historic area. I went after some serious rain so the creeks/rivers were high and the trails closest to the river were flooded.
