Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"This hike loops the Poor Creek drainage of Petersburg National Battlefield, Civil War site of the longest siege in American history. Leave the earthworks of Fort Haskell and travel through bottoms, hills, and by the old Taylor Farm, all of which played roles in the Union blockade of Petersburg.

Along the way discover miles of earthworks dug by soldiers during the ten-month blockade. Other hiking trails and the auto tour road provide more exploration opportunities at this large historic and natural site in the heart of Petersburg."
