  • We visited here and there was a Battle reenactment going on. We were able to see a cannon being shot off and the soldiers in there "uniforms". It was a neat experience and brought history to life.  more »

  • This is a minor battlefield site that is only lightly maintained in a more or less natural state. The site features a fairly short trail system with plaques describing the battle spread throughout. The old rail path cut through the ridge line is a point of interest, as are the memorials for the fallen of both sides. The site has free public parking (daylight hours only), but no other facilities ( i.e. no restrooms, no campsites, no water or concessions, etc.). This is a nice site to go for a quiet walk in the woods. You'll likely come across a few locals walking their dogs, but the place is never crowded. If you are walking for the exercise, you can cover the entire site in about half an hour; if you are taking time to read the historical markers and observe your surroundings you should allocate a couple of hours to take it all in.
  • We love this place for toddler/child friendly hiking. It's shaded, stroller friendly and beautiful. We usually stop at the lakeshore to skip rocks or play in the water before hiking back.
  • This is one of the coolest and relaxing places to visit on any day of the week. Very historic and fascinating descriptions by the park service. Lots to see here.
  • Great little place to hike, easy and great overlooks of the lake, nothing too difficult, great history marks
  • Great wilderness area and lots of hiking trails
