  • Redoubt Park is a part of the Peninsula Campaign General McCelland made during 1863. A great stop for Civil War buffs. Typical of the many redoubts built by the Confederates during the campaign one....  more »
  • Redoubt Park is part of a revolutionary war battlefield. We got the CD for the narration and drove while listening. We stopped at various parking places to explore and learn more. We love history...  more »

  • Super cool park in Williamsburg with lots of history. We hiked the mile long trail (.5 in and .5 out) to redoubt #2 with our dog this past weekend. It wasn't anything too strenuous but wasn't a flat walk either. There are some stairs and it's a bit hilly but not bad. I'm not sure I'd call it moderately difficult like the sign posted says. We wished the trail were a little longer but still enjoyed it!
  • It’s just an okay trail ^_^ the paved section is very short maybe a nice short 10min walk (maybe less) ^_^ the turtle trail was longer. Only thing was there were a few trees down that we had to duck under or hop over.
