Named For: Gen. G.K. Warren, Chief Engineer of the Army of the Potomac.
Location: Devil’s Den / Little Round Top.
Designer: E.B. Cope.
Description: Avenue measures 0.295 miles long by 20′ wide. Constructed of bituminous treated macadam with telford base. Connects Crawford Avenue with Sykes Avenue at the south slope of Little Round Top. Pull-offs were added by NPS near east end of avenue in the 1950s.
History: Avenue constructed by War Department. Named after General Warren who was staff engineer and was chiefly responsible for defense of Little Round Top.
Notes: In the spring of 2011, Warren Avenue was washed out by a sudden April rain. This photo was taken the day after the damage occurred and illustrates the damage the road incurred due to flooding.
Warren Avenue used to be open to two way traffic from both the Valley of Death (Crawford/Sickles Avenue) and from South Confederate Avenue. As of June 2011, Warren Avenue is only open to one-way traffic due to the flood damage. It is not known if, or when, Warren Avenue will return to becoming a two-way access road.
