After a six-month rehabilitation project necessary to address significant erosion along walkways and unauthorized social trails that created safety hazards, Devil's Den will reopen with reestablished features that make up this segment of the battlefield. The rehabilitation will allow visitors to better immerse themselves into the historic landscape that is essential to understanding the three-day Battle of Gettysburg.
Although the area will reopen to visitors, one central area will remain fenced to allow more time for further vegetation growth. The fencing in this area will remain until native grasses have fully established. This process may take up to two growing seasons, into 2024. In the interim, all non-native vegetation will continue to be treated within the entire project area.
