Description
Waypoints (0)

A solemn trail through the cemetary and monuments at the National Military Park at Fredricksburg and Spotsylvania. Accessibility: This asphalt, brick, packed gravel and grass trail is estimated to typically range from 3-8 feet wide. The slope is very steep in some locations and estimated to range from 0 to 15% grade. The steepest sections, estimated from 8 to 15% grade, are located at the 0.0, 0.3, 0.4, and 0.6 to 0.7 mile mark. Users with mobility equipment or limited mobility may need assistance for several portions as the surface may be soft and steep near the cemetery. The most accessible portion of this trail is likely along the Sunken Road. There are two designated handicapped-accessible car parking spots with access aisles at the Visitors Center and Gift Shop parking lot.

Nice trail in a very historical area. Could have taken much longer if I had stopped to read all the markers. Some hills and elevation but overall a nice loop to walk/hike.

We recently moved to Fredericksburg and my son and I both play Pokemon Go! There are a bunch of gyms and stops here and pokemon are plentiful. All that aside, the history here is interesting, particularly the Innis house with all the musket ball holes in the walls.

Well defined moderately easy trail. There were a few, very few wet spots given all the recent rain but all in all there were many ways to pass and it was a beautiful day.

Some interesting history on the trail but you can get more from elsewhere in the park. The path through the graveyard is rather confusing.

Another historical walk through history. Accessible by all. Well maintained and mostly on hard surfaces so strollers and wheelchairs shouldn’t be a problem.

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

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.

First to Review

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.
