Horse Trail Closure
Due to extensive recent rains, the Horse Trail at the Battlefield is temporarily closed. Equestrians will be permitted to ride the road shoulder on the Tour Road. Entrance fees do apply to horseback riders; please pay at Visitor Center.
Bicycling is a scenic and popular way to tour the battlefield.
Helmets are required for cyclists under the age of 15. Entrance fees are in effect during the fee season.
There is a multi-use lane available for bicycling and pedestrian use on our 10-mile paved tour road.

American General Philip Schuyler could be considered the "father of the American canal system". His plans for a canal system in New York met with limited use in his lifetime and later became the groundwork for the Champlain Canal, America’s first major canal.
