Significance: Following both existing roads and historic road traces, the nearly nine miles of battlefield tour roads provide for visitor access to significant sites associated with the siege and battle of 1781. Engineers, landscape architects, and historians worked closely to develop the tour route to recreate the colonial feel of eighteenth century Yorktown. Part of the original interpretive program of the park, the tour roads are an important component of the park's road system which directs the circulation of visitors while in the park.
