Length: 9.1 mi • Est. 4 h 7 m
Please note: As of September 28, 2020, the Visitor Center and observation tower are closed until further notice but the trails are open. See the park website for more information: https://www.nps.gov/anti/planyourvisit/conditions.htm This is a beautiful hike with a mix of trail types ranging from paved roads, gravel and grass trails. The Three Farms and Sherrick Farm Trails are not widely used so you'll be able to walk in the woods in peace. You will start behind the visitor's center on the Bloody Lane Trail. Take the trail down to the Tower taking in the various memorials. You will then transition to the Three Farms Trail and once you cross Boonsboro Pike, you'll be on the Sherrick Farm Trail which follows Antietam Creek. Accessibility: There is designated, handicapped-accessible parking and the Visitor Center and restrooms are wheelchair accessible. The trail surface is a combination of paved and gravel/dirt sections. The paved areas are typically at least six feet wide but the dirt trails may be much narrower, down to two feet wide. The estimated average grade is 5% and the max grade is 12% so there are steep sections but most interpretive displays and monuments can be reached by car if the trail is too steep for mobility equipment or stroller users.Show more
