During the Battle of Monocacy, Union forces were positioned in lines of battle in the yard of Gambrill Mill.

The Gambrill Mill Trail is a wonderful 0.5-mile walk through history, and provides, depending on the season, dividends to those who use it. During the spring and summer, the trail is alive with a wide variety of wildflowers. During the fall the sounds of ducks and geese, are framed in the brilliant colors of changing leaves along along the Monocacy River and Bush Creek. You will find wayside exhibits along the trail to help you understand the battle.
