Antietam Battlefield Historic Trail

The battlefield has numerous short trails, that can be combined to make a suitable distance for your group. The trails provide Scouts (and others who are eligible) to learn about the various sites and events of the Battle of Antietam. Scouts who complete the trail set out by their leaders, earn the Antietam Battlefield Historic Trail Patch. Patches are available online or by calling the park bookstore at 301-432-4329. The trails begin at the Rohrbach Campground or the vistor center.

 

Resource Stewardship Scout Ranger Program

Antietam National Battlefield participates in both the Girl Scout Ranger and Boy Scout Ranger Program. After your scouts have completed the activities, you can email the park’s Education Coordinator to get the patches.
