Two accessible parking spaces for standard-sized vehicles are available at the Visitor Center parking area and the Church parking area. Several "oversized" spaces that can accommodate campers, buses and large RVs are also available at both locations.


The Visitor Center provides accessible restrooms, a large open exhibit area, and height compliant water fountains. Picnic bences are available underneath a ramada just outside the visitor center.

The Church parking area also has access to benches, picnic tables, restrooms, and a water fountain.

Trail Accessibility

The 1.25 mile Ancestral Sites Trail is made of packed earth and light gravel and may not be completely accessible. However, a shorter pathway is available from the Church parking lot and is fairly flat.

Benches are located adjacent to the walking trail at the following locations:

  • In the breezeway of the Visitor Center

  • Between trail stops #1 and #2

  • Trail stop #5

  • Between trail stops #6 and #7

  • Trail stop #8

The 2.3 mile long Civil War Battlefield Trail has a 1/4-mile accessible portion that starts at the trailhead and is straight with a slight grade. The trail is hard-packed earth covered with light gravel. Benches are located at the end of the trail. **Currently, the the accessible portion of the trail is damaged in some places. Please be extra careful and watch your step as you walk along this portion.**

Ask a ranger at the visitor desk for more information about trail accessibility.
