Cold Harbor Battlefield Loop

Cold Harbor Battlefield Loop Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"This hike circuits through an important conflict site during the Union’s attempt to capture the Confederate capital of Richmond. The crossroads at Cold Harbor, now in the suburbs of Richmond, provide a quiet forested park with user-friendly trails that belie its violent past. Leave the battlefield visitor center, crossing an open field.

Enter woodlands, passing earthworks dug during an eleven-day siege pitting the troops of Robert E. Lee against Ulysses S. Grant. Take the extended loop past Bloody Run, a stream that crosses the battlefield. Curve around the property in rolling terrain, climbing to a hill overlooking the theater of war, before returning to the visitor center."
