GNMP Route 3b Map for a 10.7-mile historic bike tour of Gettysburg National Military Park.
#3 Best Selling Gettysburg bike map. “Battle Days 2&3 Short Loop”. Formatted for download as a PDF document (not part of a GPS system).
This route provides abbreviated coverage of key Gettysburg battlefield sites for fighting on July 2-3, 1863. It is a shorter version of Route 3, omitting Warfield Ridge and South Cavalry Field to cut through The Peach Orchard via Millerstown Road. Route 3b is especially suitable for bicyclists who want the challenge of Culp’s Hill but do not have time to tour Confederate positions along Warfield Ridge and approaching Big Round Top. Note: If you want to ride between 9.0 and 17.0 miles, your best options are Routes 3, 3b, 4, or 5, because they cut in half Route 1’s need to ride on busy residential streets or sidewalks.
Route 3b (Battle Days 2&3 Short Loop) features a 10.7-mile historic ride through East Cemetery Hill, Seminary Ridge, The Peach Orchard, the Little Round Top area, Cemetery Ridge, and the eastern approach to Culp’s Hill. With time for rest and stops to enjoy the monumented landscape, most bicyclists will complete this route in about 3-4 hours.
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).
