The Walking Trail

Welcome to the Civil War Preservation Trust's White Oak Road Battlefield! The battlefield walking trail is a two-thirds-of-a-mile path that takes you past six wayside signs interpreting the 1865 battle, the remains of the Confederate earthworks, and two well preserved gun emplacements. Allow one hour to walk this trail.

The trail has a hard-packed walking surface; please do not stray from this trail. Beware of ticks and snakes that thrive in the woods surrounding the trail. Please stay off the earthworks to preserve them for future visitors.

Most importantly, please enjoy your time in these beautiful woods and reflect that this experience would have been significantly different if this land had been paved over to build a shopping mall or subdivision. To help CWPT preserve other battlefields like White Oak Road, please call 1-888-606-1400.

The Roller-Bottimore Foundation generously contributed to interpretation at CWPT's Petersburg-area battlefields.
