Great trail, must do if you love Civil war history like me. Trail is easy enough to follow with lots of history markers along the way. Practically no shade on this trail so if doing during the summer be sure to have sun protection and plenty of water. Park is free to enter and free to park, with plenty of trail maps at parking spots. Rangers are super friendly and they have tons of reenactments and tours at the park which makes this a great place for kids.
