I have a question I'm hoping someone local to Gettysburg can help with. On the park's website (https://www.nps.gov/gett/planyourvisit/interpretation.htm) there are listed several "Battle Walks" which seem to be 2 hour hikes. Unfortunately, someone forgot to include what time those walks take place. Does anyone know what time the walks start?

I am considering going to the battlefield tomorrow and if I do, would like to attend the "Final Fight of the Iron Brigade" walk if possible. Thanks!

I see the schedule for the anniversary walks in a couple of weeks from that link, but not for the June "Battle Walks". Am I missing it?

Until 2000 we had a beautiful yellow lab named Jenny. We also had a rescue pass away recently - chihuahua named Buddy. Love your dog, man.
Thanks Jim. Dogs are amazing...both steal and break our hearts.

Just wanted to follow up and thank those of you who passed along the 10 AM start time. I was tired last night and didn't think to look elsewhere on the GNBP website for a time. I managed to make it up there in time this morning and spent most of the day there. The Iron Brigade walk was great thanks to the park ranger who led it.

And just to tie everything together in this thread, here's a photo of one of my dogs at Devil's Den this afternoon.
