This is an easy trail for families. The scenery is good, the trail is quiet, and you can learn a bit about a very historical battle in Winchester! Recommended!

History is what you learn from. This location is well marked for what happened here and has some great walking (and biking) trails.

This is a hidden gem in Virginia. Good historical markers and beautiful scenery. I rate it very good because I wouldn't want to be there alone. Feels a little sketchy at times.

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

I am not sure there are hours really. It is open pasture and trails for 5 miles. I would assume like most parks or trails they are closed at dusk.
