Directions

The Monterey Pass Battlefield and Park is located in Blue Ridge Summit near the intersection of Route 16 and Charmian Road. The sites with interpretational markers are handicap accessible from 8:00 a.m. to dusk. Parking is located at the Monterey Pass Battlefield Park, however, buses and larger vehicles need to park at Rolando Woods Lions Club Park located along Charmian Road. Please keep in mind that most of the battlefield is on private property, and we ask those touring the battlefield to respect the property owners who so kindly allowed us to place markers on their property.
