Sunday, March 13th, 1:30 PM. 4 miles. Gettysburg Rec Park to Pickett’s Charge Field.
Park at the Sterner Building at the Rec Par, 545 Long Lane, Gettysburg. The hike will use the Biser Trail to get to Howard Street, then neighborhood streets to the Armory onto W. Confederate Ave. At the VA Memorial the hike will head left across the fields used by Pickett’s troop, emerging onto Hancock Avenue by The Angle. The hike then returns via neighborhood streets. Expect a quiet winter experience reminiscent of the nineteenth century. Relatively flat, part gravel/dirt trail, part roadways and sidewalks. Easy, but longer.
