A walking history lesson, fun for the kids.

Beautiful, especially the Fredericksburg National Cemetery. Lucky for me it’s an easy trail- I’m really out of shape!

Long, rolling hills and pretty views. When the crops are growing, it’s almost like walking through a corn-walled maze.

Short hike on one of the deadliest sites at the Civil War Battle of Fredericksburg. On the easy side of moderate due to short length and gradual inclines. Interpretive signs help you imagine the battle on these grounds.

It's more of a walk than a hike for sure. Lot's of history on and around the trail. There is actually a section of the original wall that the Confederates were behind when they were firing downhill. The trail allows you to access the cemetery that has many union headstones in it. Stop by the visitor's center located at the start of the trail. They have a short film to watch about the battle that took place there with information that you won't find in biased history books even though it is hard to deny the Confederate victory. There is a museum right beside the visitor center. The park rangers are also helpful and there is no entrance fee to either site.

Mostly bikers on narrow trail. Not an official trail. Not markers or signs (other than no trespassing).

Cool if you like the idea of walking through a farm.
