There are nine hiking trails and one short paved walking path at Antietam National Battlefield. These are some of the best battlefield trails in the National Park System. Not only do they allow visitors to walk the actual landscapes where the bloodiest day in American history took place, but they also pass by monuments, farms, and artillery exhibits that aren’t accessible by vehicle.
