We had another here on the way to Asheville. It’s was ok but it’s not a blast. The people at the visitor center were very friendly. A nice stop on the way.

Outer trails are not crowded and overlooked by the throngs that hit the two main trails. Even off of the main trails there are numerous side paths. All well maintained with wonderful field views, forest and streams.

Great movie to watch before you tour the battlefield narrated by Richard Dreyfuss. We chose to do the self guided driving tour rather than any guided tour that's offered. All the information you need is right there and easy to follow. While we were there...More
