Driving Tour Road Closure
Due to icy conditions on the tour road, the road is closed Sunday, Dec. 1st. Starting Monday, Dec. 2nd, the tour road will be closed for the season.
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.
