Here's a link to the Mason-Dixon Council's Historic Trails...

Gettysburg NHP and Antietam NHP both have fantastic hikes. Gettysburg's is divided into (I think) 3 hikes. You can access both from their local council sites or the Battlefield hikes. Also, there are historic hikes for Jamestown/Yorktown/Williamsburg from Colonial Something Council in VA. These are nice hikes for younger scouts. Very easily done. Antietam's hike requires a proficiency with a compass (not GPS).

Lost on my trail somewhere??

ASM, if (IF) I find my booklet on Scouting Trails around the Nation, and that isn't the title, I'll share details. Do you desire Trails within a Region, or??? :?:
