“Weave in and around civil war trenches hitting every trail this park has to offer with a smooth 5.5k figure 8 loop.”— Jared Boggess
This run first travels across the open field from the visitor center before entering the wooded trails for the remainder of the track. Several intersections give you options to shorten or lengthen your run as desired. I take a left at the first Main Trail (Blue) intersection; then turn right at the road following along until the Extended Loop Trail (White) breaks off into the sticks again on the left.
Take a left to include the Western Trail (Yellow) loop, which takes you out to a beautiful lake and then back. Take a left to continue the Extended Loop Trail (White) around the remainder of the battlefields.
