Information Kiosk and Shelter
Two handicap parking spaces are located adjacent to a concrete sidewalk leading to the information kiosk, vault toilet, picnic site, shelter house and Courage Monument.
Inside the information kiosk are panels explaining the significance of the battle, details about the combatants and how the battle itself progressed. To the west of the kiosk is the Courage Monument, which includes a dedication plaque. Just beyond the monument the sidewalk ends and a crushed rock loop trail about 0.6 miles long continues with some inclines. The sidewalk east of the kiosk leads to the vault toilet, picnic site, drinking fountain and a picnic shelter that can accommodate 50 people. The sidewalk surface changes beyond the shelter house to crushed rock and continues for about 0.6 miles on a loop with inclines. Benches have been provided for rest along the way, and there are three interpretive panels along the crushed rock portion of the loop trail. The total length of the trail is about 0.6 miles.
