My husband and I live right around the corner from here so we take all three of are dogs walking there at least once a week. It’s a wonderful historic battlefield with a few different options or trails depending on how long you want to spend.

This is a beautiful hike without all the city noise and parking issues. Trail is well marked and if you add the extended loop and the yellow diamond it's closer to 4 miles. Good restrooms and water available too. Also a paved trail option if you prefer. My dog loves it. Support our National Parks.

Loved the trail and the history along the way. Easy walk through the woods. There are several loops. I did about 2 miles.

Did the extended loop. Seemed like kind of a maze, with the trail and the road intersecting so much but that was kind of fun actually. Just 20 minutes out of Richmond, I learned a lot about the battle that happened here and got to enjoy an easy and quiet trail.

I did the extended loop (white) to the yellow loop and back to white...it is 3.0 exactly if you start at parking lot and finish there. The trenches are eerie but beautiful. I walk a little faster when walking through a few. Slight hills but a very clear and marked path. Dog friendly too!

As it was such a beautiful fall day we walked the outer loop trail and covered 2.7 miles using MapMyWalk app. The breastworks are impressive. The trail was a nice mix of woods walking and walking on the hard surfaced road.
