Very nice. Walk, run, bike ride, skateboard. Stroller friendly.
Bathrooms can be found as you pass Old Mill Park, CVS and Hardees. Just an FYI on that one.

Trail isn't in Pratt Park. As stated before it is actually 2 trails that make a 3.4 mile loop. Can be busy depending on the time of day you use it. Watch the bicyclists as they make wide turns when crossing bridges and entering the trail and they give no warning they are behind and passing you.

This is actually two trails connected to make a loop trail. It is the Canal Path trail and Heritage trail combined to make a 3.4 mile paved trail. You can park down near the river and go west along the river, the heritage trail connects with Canal Path trail just under the bridge under Fall Hill Ave. Back at the end of the trail you cross two fairly busy streets to get back to the river.

Easy paved walking path through downtown Fredericksburg. For anyone bringing pets or small children, most of the path is not shaded by trees and there are a few foot bridges made of synthetic materials that looked like they got very hot (too hot for a dog's paws).

Nice family walk with our dogs. The trail was very easy and loved how it is marked for both directions of foot, bike, runner traffic.
