Visitors center was closed due to covid but all trails and driving tour was open. Stop by the visitor center and get a brochure. Then use the audio tour link from the nps website and listen at various locations. Was enjoyable and very interesting

Very educational! I love driving through here when I have the chance. Walk it or drive it this place is amazing. Lots of history to be told here things you wouldn't get in schools or the "real" word these days. Very easy to tour. Note during covid the visitors center has not been open. Only the outdoor part of the grounds open.

While the park office was closed (due to Covid), the park itself was open and provided a fantastic history lesson for us. There is a 7 mile self guided (you can't get lost) tour which you can (1) listen to on a weblink or (2) just read the descriptive markers at 11 stations throughout the drive. This park is immaculately maintained and was absolutely gorgeous with the fall colors. This was the site of one of the most important early battles (March 1862) between the two sides when the outcome could have gone either way. You can do the tour in under an hour (if you speed through) or take as much time as you want. Will want to go back when the visitor's center is open to get more information from the park guides!

We visited this Civil War battlefield in October 2020 during the pandemic. We were disappointed that the visitor center was closed as we wanted to see some artifacts and learn more about the battle. Anyway we drove the seven mile loop stopping at each of the ten stops. At stop #8 is Elkhorn Tavern which was the only structure to see on the drive. This is a reconstruction. It is two stories as opposed to the original that was only one story. It offered the opportunity to walk around a bit though. There are many cannons along the stops to see. The area looked as if it needed some upkeep. Thanks Covid.

Although the Visitor’s Center is closed (Covid), we did the driving tour - and it’s impressive. Walked/hiked a bit in the beautiful fall foliage. Been here a number of times - it never fails to humble me.
