Guilford Courthouse Loop Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"This loop hike explores Greensboro’s preserved Revolutionary War battlefield—Guilford Courthouse National Military Park. After learning about this important engagement at the visitor center, you can take the hiker-only path past informative displays, monuments, and other interpretive information amid a scenic setting.

This is an opportunity to combine a hike with a walking tour of a historic Revolutionary War battlefield. The leader of the American side, Nathanael Greene, is the man for whom Greensboro is named. First stop at the visitor center and at least view the ten-minute tactical film explaining the battle. The thirty-minute film is even better. Other displays have artifacts form the actual engagement.

The hiker-only trail roughly parallels the auto tour route, stopping at seven of the eight official tour stops. Oaks and pines dominate the woodlands here, which are interspersed with clearings. You will see numerous monuments and also travel part of historic New Garden Road, the reason the battle occurred here in the first place."
