Hiking the Battlefield Trail
Two additional trails lead you out to the U.S. and Mexican battle lines and put you in the heart of the action. Hiking our trails gives you the best opportunity to experience and understand the site of the first clash of the U.S.—Mexican War.
Trails are paved in either concrete or black top. However, some sections of the trail are composed of a boardwalk. The grade of the trail is fairly flat. Elevation at the battlefield overlook rises to approximately 6 feet. The primary trail is 8 feet wide. The U.S. and Mexican battle line trails are 4 feet wide.
