Description

If you are a history buff, especially Civil War history, then this is a fantastic run. It's not difficult, by any means, but it is really interesting to run through Camp Nelson and read some of the markers and information about the various forts that were once in existence there. It's not a long trail, but you are running in open fields, so bring some sunscreen. This fort also connects with other trails to for a longer loop that also takes you to various areas that were used by the Union Army.
