Below is a link for the National Park Service’s spring hiking schedule at Antietam. Antietam guides and park rangers John Hoptak and Mike Gamble are among those leading these hikes. Additionally, you will probably see some of our other guides tagging along on the hikes as well. While driving the park tour roads can give you a good overview of Antietam, there is no better way to truly understand the battle and the battlefield than to get out and hike the ground. Antietam has many fantastic trails highlighting various areas of the battlefield. Tagging along on these spring hikes is an excellent way to learn more about the Battle of Antietam and the men who fought there.
