As much as I enjoy strolling around downtown New Bern, I need some variety in my exercise routine. I pass a brown highway sign pointing to the New Bern Battlefield Park each time I visit the grocery. Today I pull into this park just off highway 70 east of town. I hope to find more walking trails here, but what I find is a very nicely preserved and extremely tidy battlefield occupied only by the ghosts of past conflicts. I have never seen another living person on any of my visits here. Except for the sounds of an occasional train passing along the park boundary, a walk here offers peaceful solitude and challenging terrain. If you are not planning a visit to New Bern soon, share the park with me in the video below.
