Journey Through Hallowed Ground Byway
The 180-mile Journey Through Hallowed Ground byway corridor from Gettysburg, Pennsylvania, to Monticello, Virginia, is "Where America Happened." It is said that this three-state route, spanning Maryland, Pennsylvania, and Virginia, holds more historic sites than any other in the US. It was an active transportation route during the Revolutionary War, a critical transition zone for the Underground Railroad, and a key battleground during the Civil War. This early corridor was the literal "roadbed" for the creation of our country and American ideals.
America's Byways take you to some of the best hiking trails across the nation, including the greatest of them all, the Appalachian Trail. As you begin the ambitious journey, you'll wind your way across 2,160 miles of the East's most impressive terrain.
