My wife and I enjoyed our short visit to this site. It is a bit out of the way but for a short hike, it has nice farm country views. Their were porta-johns on site, near the black and white state markers. The parking area is just past a collection of historic markers and is labeled fairly well. The first... More

This is a lesser known battlefield, easy to access and explore. It's well marked and nearly true to original condition making it one of the better places to visualize the maneuvers. You can cover it well in a couple hours. There's also a historic society you can join.

The walking trail for this battlefield is a little over a mile in length with 6 or 7 really good wayside markers, with one of the markers identifying the location of General Winder's mortal wounding. I was told by some people working at the Fredericksburg and Spotsylvania NMP that if the funding is available, this battlefield and the one at... More

My brother and I visited the Cedar Mountain Battlefield early on the Fourth of July. It is located just south of Culpeper, VA on US 15. We had a friend give us a tour of the site. There is a small parking area about 100 feet from the markers. At the parking area, there is a sign with a phone... More

I think Cedar Mountain is not officially part of the National Park Service, but it is protected by a private foundation. (See Fredericksburg NPS site for some more information.) It is in a beautiful setting, far less brutal and painful as it was when hand-to-hand fighting occurred here. One marker says that it is the only place where Stonewall Jackson... More

Pull off the busy highway, wind just a bit around to the Battlefield, and get out of your vehicle. Read the signage, look around 360 degrees, and pause. Armed with your new information, look around you and imagine. The trails are beautiful and, although just off the highway, I've not come across anyone else in the 3 times I've stopped.... More

Nice to see that some of this battlefield is now protected. The battlefield looks pretty much the way it did, which adds to the experience. One can easily see the terrain and can almost feel the front lines. Along beautiful route 15, from Culpeper to Orange, Va.
