America's Battleground Fredericksburg, Chancellorsville, Wilderness, and Spotsylvania--this is America's battleground, where the Civil War roared to its bloody climax. No place more vividly reflects the War's tragic cost in all its forms. A town bombarded and looted. Farms large and small ruined. Refugees by the thousands forced into the countryside. More than 85,000 men wounded; 15,000 killed--most in graves unknown. Hours of operation vary by season and building.

This was a pretty good trail. There was not very much elevation change. There were quite a few foot bridges throughout the trail. I started at the far end of Lee Drive and worked backwards. Then I walked along Lee Drive to get back. It was a pleasant day for the hike. After reading the information postings throughout the park, when I heard the whistle of the trains going by, it felt like I was taking a walk through history when this area was controlled by the Confederate Army for a supply line to and from Richmond. Pretty cool.

Beautiful, peaceful paved road. Great for biking, jogging, and walks.

More for biking and driving then hiking. Roads seem to have consumed the trails. Crossing brock rd. is very dangerous.

Good workout. Lots of families walking, biking and hiking.
