History at Sunset: Flank to Flank, Hiking in the Footsteps of Soldiers While Exploring the Terrain of the Third Winchester Battlefield
Presented by Cedar Creek & Belle Grove National Historical Park. Besides being excellent places to experience history, many Civil War battlefields are also great places for hiking. With more than five miles of well-maintained trail over rolling terrain and through woodlots, the Third Winchester battlefield is one of the best. Join Ranger Rick Ashbacker to not only hike most of the battlefield, but also discuss key events, locations, and natural features on the site of the largest battle in the Shenandoah Valley. Meet at the parking lot for the Third Winchester Visitor Center (541 Redbud Road, Winchester, VA 22603). This activity is recommended primarily for visitors who are comfortable hiking at least 3-4 miles at a moderate pace.
