  • Nice place to visit if you are a good walker. We saw a giant turtle covered with mud crossing the path. Lots of runners and lots of dogs with their owners. Overall a nice nature path .  more »
  • Enjoyable trails to take walks with your family. I took two of my kids there and we ended up coming back the next weekend to explore more. My little girl got a kick out of joining the junior rangers. ...  more »

  • What a great place to visit. If you want a quiet place to walk or sit, go out into the park. If you want more history in your life, go to the visitor center. They have a great film on what happened at this location during the Revolutionary War. The staff is extremely helpful. Stop at the front desk for ideas on what to do there. Bathrooms are inside the visitor center. Making it even better is that it is all free.
  • Interesting and engaging tour of one of the key battles in the War for Independence. The staff was helpful, and we enjoyed the displays and presentation at the visitor's center. The self-guided driving tour suited our limited schedule and we got a good sense of the battle even though we didn't walk all the trails on the the tour.
  • This national park has it all. Convenient location, great trails, and a great history of the battle of Guilford Courthouse for the American Revolutionary War. Nathanael Greene was in charge of the American forces and he is the namesake for Greensboro, NC. He fought against General Cornwallis. Come learn of the history here where it is said that the armies of General Greene were first called Tar Heels because they stuck their heels in the dirt and would not move Cornwallis said they fight like they have tar on their heels. Hence, the Tarheel state.
  • Wonderful piece of U.S. History. The rangers all had wonderful passion and shared it with my son and I. I recommend the whole walk. Stop by the Welcome Center and watch the National Parks video. Puts it into great context. The hike is well worth it. My 5 year old has sparked an interest in history and this really brought it to life for him. For me it exemplifies the sacrifice these men made for our new nation. The battle of New Garden was hand to hand, house to house. Led by "Lighthorse" Henry Lee. It was this battle that sent Cornwalis packing toward Yorktown!
  • Great place to visit with family and learn about the history that took place in this area. Get a chance to get some incite along with the experience what took place in this particular area. Have a great half hour movie.
