This is a hidden gem in Virginia. Good historical markers and beautiful scenery. I rate it very good because I wouldn't want to be there alone. Feels a little sketchy at times.

Signs are well place. Learn about the biggest battle in Winchester. Nice scenery on this walk. One part gets kinda confusing where to walk but the path is well maintained.

My GPS and Trip Advisor do not have accurate directions to this National Park, but after some false turns we made our way there. The Visitors Center was closed for renovations so we read the signs and then started on the walking trails. It is...More

I am not sure there are hours really. It is open pasture and trails for 5 miles. I would assume like most parks or trails they are closed at dusk.
