Historic Battlefield Trail




Type of trail:

The Brownsville Historic Battlefield Trail stretches for almost 10 linear miles from the Mitte Cultural District and Southern Linear Park at the southern end to the Palo Alto Battlefield National Historical Park to the north. The trail also connects to the Resaca de la Palma Battlefield. The trail is a place for exercise and activity, but also provides an opportunity to connect to important cultural opportunities and places of local, regional, and national history. Today, the Historic Battlefield Trail provides hike and bike access to the preserved battlefields of Palo Alto and Resaca de la Palma and links them to Brownsville’s museums and cultural district.
