Caption: Touring the Battlefield of Third Winchester
Additional Description: Not strictly an "historical marker," but included as to display the location of related markers along the trail. It is located at the trail head on the left side. The marker reads: Welcome to the Civil War Preservation Trust's Third Winchester battlefield. There are three connected walking/hiking/cycling trails that will take you over much of the battlefield of September 19, 1864. The trails are steep and rugged at points (indicated on the map) and their combined length is approximately five miles, so allow for a three to four hour walk. Signs and tree markings will guide you. Wayside exhibits will provide information and orientation along the way. Please remain on the marked trails throughout your visit and watch for ticks and snakes. There are no restrooms or drinking facilities so please be prepared for your visit.
We hope you enjoy your time at Third Winchester. For more information about this and other sites saved by CWPT, please visit www.civilwar.org.
