Gettysburg Heritage Hike: Walking Fields of Glory
Larry Korczyk, Licensed Battlefield Guide
Registration Deadline: April 18, 2014Open to Members and Non-members
$90 Members/$115 Non-members
Join Licensed Battlefield Guide Larry Korczyk for a two-day, fifteen mile battlefield hike unlike any other. The Heritage Trail Hike will go to places that a normal battlefield tour does not show.
"Walking Fields of Glory" is based on the Gettysburg: Heritage Trail Guide with some modifications. Korczyk will lead a two-day vigorous hike of the battlefield while pausing a few places along the way to tell brief stories of the battlefield and the men who fought there along with some history of the monuments you will pass. This very strenuous hike will include hills, creeks, and rocky terrain.
On Saturday, the hike will cover the ten-mile Billy Yank trail which takes approximately seven hours to complete, and cover areas such as Devil’s Den and Culp’s Hill. On Sunday, the hike will finish with the five-mile Johnny Reb trail, which takes approximately four hours to complete.
Both days the tour will start and end at the Gettysburg National Military Park Museum and Visitor Center. Backpacks, hiking shoes and walking sticks are suggested. This tour will proceed rain or shine.
The registration fee of $90 for members and $115 for non-members includes a morning and afternoon water/snack break and box lunch on Saturday, a water/snack break on Sunday, and a copy of the Gettysburg: Heritage Trail Guide.
