GNMP Route 1 Map for a 23.8-mile historic bike tour of Gettysburg National Military Park.
#1 Best Selling Gettysburg bike map. “Full Day Loop”. Formatted for download as a PDF document (not part of a GPS system).
Pick this bicycle route if you are fit enough to ride for several hours but with frequent breaks to enjoy the Gettysburg battlefield. This is a circular route along paved park roads, but you will ride on busy residential streets or sidewalks to tour the Day 1 battlefield.
Route 1 features a 23.8-mile historic ride through East Cemetery Hill, Seminary and McPherson’s Ridges, Oak Hill, Barlow’s Knoll, Coster Avenue, Little Round Top, Devil’s Den, Rose Woods, The Peach Orchard, and the eastern slope of Culp’s Hill. Route 1 covers the fields, woods, hills, and swales on which Union and Confederate soldiers fought the Battle of Gettysburg (July 1-3, 1863). With time for rest and stops to enjoy the monumented landscape, most bicyclists will complete this route in about 5-6 hours, a full day of touring.
This map is an optional digital companion to the much larger 286-page paperback guidebook by Sue Thibodeau, Bicycling Gettysburg National Battlefield: The Cyclist’s Civil War Travel Guide (Victor, NY: Civil War Cycling, 2019). ISBN 978-1-7326038-0-6. Available on Amazon (paid link).
