The Vietnam Memorial Trail is 1050 ft. to the flag and then another 1613 ft. to the top. There are 44 plaques, honoring some of our fallen veterans, and some interesting details and statistics regarding the war. The final plaque and an American flag are less than 1/4 mile up the trail and continues for about ½ mile, after the flag. There are 8 benches along the path to the flag.


Youtube about the trail

Work began on the 14th of Feb. 2009. The flag and trail are maintained by individuals from the nearby community of Trilogy at Vistancia.
