The best way to experience Antietam Battlefield is by bicycle. The tour road is hilly in places but can be easily ridden by a moderately in-shape person using a capable 21 speed bike, of course you can always walk up a hill. The battlefield loop is about 9 miles long.
The C&O Canal National Park borders Sharpsburg. This 185 mile path follows the Potomac River from Georgetown DC to Cumberland MD. Here the terrain is gentle, and along the scenic tree-lined path you will find historic ruins, cliffs and caves, and some good riverside picnic spots.
Shady biking conditions make this trip a great option for hot Summer days. In the fall the trail becomes radiant with the colors of changing leaves. Via the canal, Harpers Ferry is about 12 miles each way from Sharpsburg. In Harpers Ferry there are several restaurants for lunch.
