  • Beautiful countryside and informative signs. Some of the walkways need some TLC to be more handicap accessible. Still a great park with a lot to teach.
  • Great place to go by for a good dog walk - 4 or 5 different location to do the walk! Glad that such kind of "walk" are available just outside city of Frederick!
  • This was a great detour on our trip and had a well laid out driving tour and information. Worth the stop!
  • A lesser known battlefield but an interesting story and I'm glad I visited. The visitor center is small but informative - a very nice place to stop.
  • Had some nice places to walk...small visitors center.
