“A gorgeous run through a historic battlefield. Beautiful sections by Antietam Creek ending with a small uphill challenge”— Lynda Fowler
Turn right and follow this section along down to the creek. Watch for roots as you head downhill to the creek. This now becomes the singletrack and runs VERY close to the creek, so watch your footing as there are some sections with roots.
After this, the trail heads uphill and back out into the meadow looping back to the parking lot.
