The McDowell Battlefield Trail
The McDowell Battlefield Trail leads to the top of Sittlington Hill and the core of the McDowell Battlefield. A marker will direct you either east returning to the parking area or west to continue to the western end of the trail. The eastern end of the trail starts on the south side of Rt. 250 at the Battlefield parking area, approximately one mile from the top of Bullpasture Mountain. The western end of the trail starts on the south side on Rt. 250, directly across from the old mill on the Bullpasture River. Parking is available at the Presbyterian Church at the junction of Rt. 678.
