Hiking Tours at Perryville

I am very pleased to announce that I will be leading two hiking/history tours at Perryville battlefield each year, one in the spring and the other in the fall.  In talking with Kurt Holman (the park manager at Perryville) he has given his stamp of approval to organize hikers and the general public together in a guided tour and hike.  These hikes will be about five to six miles in length and cover the main parts of the battle, from the Open Knob to Starkweather Hill, and from Doctor's Creek to Loomis' Heights.

The first hike will be on April 23rd, 2011.  The start time will be at 11:00 a.m., and we will meet at the front of the visitor's center by 10:45 a.m.  Those who wish to tour the museum may arrive early or plan to stay late after the hiking tour has been completed. 

Participants will need to wear sturdy shoes, a hat to block the sun, bring plenty of water to drink, and carry a snack or two for munching on along the way.  The tour should last three to four hours.

You may contact me here or at ohioatperryville@yahoo.com if you wish for more details.

Sounds interesting. I'll keep the date in mind and see if I can make it there. I enjoyed walking the field myself, but having others there would be quite interesting too

We are a little over two months from the first hiking history tour. I hope you can make it!
