Tour the Gettysburg battlefield > NorthCentral SouthE. Cavalry Field


After Ayres Avenue turns away from the Wheatfield it loops onto Houck’s Ridge and then returns to the woods. At the intersection with Sickles Avenue it turns into Cross Avenue, eventually becoming Brooke Avenue and then DeTrobriand Avenue before returning to Sickles Avenue in the Wheatfield. Sickles Avenue runs one-way north and west from Devil’s Den to the Rose Woods. All traffic ends up back on Wheatfield Road.

The Auto Tour turns right from Ayres Avenue onto Sickles Avenue, but drivers may choose to continue straight on Cross Avenue and rejoin the Auto Tour after the short diversion.
