I finally took the time to hike up to the top of Monterey Peak and was impressed with the wayside exhibits explaining the Battle of Monterey Pass. The terrain has to be seen to be believed, and to think it was fought in darkness and during a violent thunderstorm makes it even more terrifying. It is well worth the trip if you're visiting Gettysburg.

I have been to that area and it was worth the trip. However, I have never heard of "Monterey Peak." You said that you hiked up to the top? Of course the Pass is in the low area where the battle was fought.
