“The best trail part on the battlefield - an open singletrack to wooded trail along the creek.”

Seasonal trail closure (December 15-July 15) for bald eagle nesting.
This is a multi-use trail for hiking, biking, and horseback riding, so be prepared to share the trail.
It is just a little over 5k on this out and back trail, but this is by far my favorite section of the battlefield park to run. You can access the trailhead from a parking spot near the Taylor Farm Site, and run down the Park Tour Road / Siege Road to the concrete post AA. This is a shared trail with rocks, roots, some flooding during rainy days, and a little elevation change. You can get to Fort Haskell on this trail and take a small tour of the POIs there as well.
