Petersburg National Battlefield Professional Review and Guide

"Petersburg National Battlefield Park offers enough wooded trails open to bicycling that one would have to make plans NOT to ride to study its historical exhibits. Backroads and trails with such names as Attack Road and Encampment Trail take you cycling past massive Civil War earthworks and through some of the dense forest that was once an open field of war.

These trails are exciting and scenic and add a new dimension to off-road cycling. One day is not enough to hike all the trails in this park, though on a bike, you should have no worries about exploring each new off-road battlefield route. Trail Surface: Dirt trails and singletrack."
