Wilkinson (hiking) Trail Alternate Route in Effect
Due to conditions along the steep ravine portion of the Wilkinson Trail, an alternate route is in effect. Maps are available at the park visitor center.
A special access road up to the Visitor Center starts at the beginning of the parking lot where the picnic area is located. This leads up to a small parking lot next to the visitor center where a suitable paved pathway connects to the main entrance. A detail view of this is available on the Park's local area map.
Battlefield hiking trails are only partly developed, made of packed earth/grassy paths; they are not handicapped accessible.

Bread, pies, cookies --delicious! Baking in the 18th century was done in brick or clay "beehive" ovens. Heated by building a fire inside that was burned down to coals and ash, the heat stored in the brick and clay baked the food. A wooden plug covered the front opening and kept heat inside.
