Battlefield Walking and Biking Trails
Hikers and bikers can now travel all the way from the Clover Center to Randolph on park trails.
The walking trail from the Clover Visitor Center is approximately one mile long. There are two observation towers where visitors may observe many birds native to the area as well as deer and other wildlife while enjoying views of the wetlands.
The walking trail from the Staunton River bridge to Randolph opened for public use in the fall of 1997. The trail, which follows the roadbed of the former Richmond and Danville Railroad line, allows visitors full access to the park from either side of the river.
The 0.8 mile long trail features two new pedestrian bridges built on the original stone railroad piers. The newly resurfaced roadbed is suitable for both bicycle and pedestrian traffic and offers impressive views of the original battlefield on the Charlotte County side of the river.
