“A great route on well maintained trails in the Manassas Battlefield National Park.”— Scott Spencer
Everything is pretty well maintained and while you'll see people along the way, it's not super crowded at all.
This route is a mix of open air and woods, so plenty of shade. Except for it when there is not!
The trail continues along the graded railroad bed leading to a clearing at the Deep Cut, the scene of a bloody battle where Jackson's troops turned back a major assault, then turns south and passes the Lucinda Dogan House (one of three surviving Civil War-era structures in the park).
Moving across the road, the trail winds upward towards New York Avenue where monuments mark the site where the 5th and 10th New York regiments were slaughtered in a massive Confederate counterattack that swept eastward toward Chinn Ridge. After touring the Chinn Ridge area, the trail leads back to Henry Hill, where the final struggle during Second Manassas played out.
