The battlefield has been kept to resemble how it looked in 1864. There is an easy walk of up to 5 miles through the rolling countryside; placards describe the battle. While hiking, saw a fox.

Signs are well place. Learn about the biggest battle in Winchester. Nice scenery on this walk. One part gets kinda confusing where to walk but the path is well maintained.

5 mile trail with beauty! This trail is off of Red Bud Road and is such a pretty place to walk your dog or some freedom for the kids to roam

A good effort is being made to preserve this battlefield while keeping it accessible as open land for local residents. Trail maps and markers could be somewhat clearer, but if you have some background on what took place, you'll find the terrain interesting - if...More

As we were dressed for unpaved trails, this battlefield is okay. I think that it lends itself to just come and reflect. It is a good place to just be quiet.

This battlefield has two entrances. One starts from the union encampment and one from the rebel side. The trails are a mix of rough and ready trails that are little more than cow paths, trails that are completely done in asphalt, and others that are...More
