Located about 25 minutes from Harpers Ferry, the Antietam Battlefield is an extensive National Park. This is a good park to experience by bike or car. If by car, you may want to obtain a CD at the visitor's center for directing you about the park and providing an excellent tour as well. As it is just outside of Shepherdstown, it makes a nice afternoon activity followed by dinner in Shepherdstown.
