Well marked with signage of battle

I discovered this walking trail through a friend, and have used it several times in the past few months. The trail can be accessed from multiple sites, although I usually park at the Redbud Road parking lot and enter/exit from there. The trail has some hard top sections down near the creek, but much of it is gravel or hard... More

Although the Winchester area is now a Washington DC bedroom community and is replete with malls etc, the Civil War Trust in conjunction with the local Civil War organization in partnership with the National Park Service has been able to save some of the battlefield. Not the easiest to find as it is buried in a large manufactured home park... More

We did not have the time to walk the entire trail, and the Civil War battlefields around Winchester are not preserved like in Petersburg, Antietem, or Gettysburg, but the signage was good and it was beautiful countryside.

Third Winchester, which occurred September 19, 1864, was the largest clash between Confederate and Union forces in the Shenandoah Valley of Virginia during the Civil War. Two future United States presidents and the grandfather of George S. Patton fought in the battle, the ferocity of which was described by participants as being more hotly contested than Gettysburg. The area of... More

I'm fortunate to live right across the main highway from this battlefield. It's a great educational opportunity as Winchester changed hands 72 times during the Civil War. Many local folk exercise here on a daily basis as the trails are great and the views across the meadows are lovely; there is a great mix of meadows and forests with improved... More

If you are interested in reading about the Third Winchester Battle there are excellent signs identifying the terrain, buildings and army's involved in the battle. People also use the paths for walking and running. It appears that dogs on leashes are welcome. Was a wonderful morning walk with the various birds singing.

The Third Battle of Winchester was important in many ways. It opened up the Valley of Virginia for the final Union push. The signage and paths are excellent, whichever entrance you start at, and give you a real sense of how the battle was fought. In addition, the Battlefield park brings you to a lovely creek, and to woods and... More
