More than a dozen signs describe the landscape, the progress of the battle, and its various landmarks. Parking lots at the crest of Malvern Hill and at the Parsonage ruins provide access points.

If you begin at the Parsonage, you will walk the disastrous Confederate assault in the footsteps of the participants before reaching the Union line and circling back past the West House. If you start your walk at the crest of the hill, among the now-silent Federal cannon, you will experience the strength of the position before walking the route of the Confederate attacks.
