The Canal Path/Heritage Trail has been very busy these last few weeks. We have an interactive map to help you find nearby hiking and walking trails (some are paved, some are not) located all over the City that you may want to explore for some exercise.
Did you know that the City of Fredericksburg has more than 100 miles of sidewalks? If you can’t make it to a park or trail, there’s still plenty of walkways to get you outside so you can stay active!
The 2.7 mile trail for pedestrians, bicyclists and runners Virginia Central Railway (VCR) Trail. This ten foot wide asphalt trail extends from the eastern end of the Cobblestone development off Lafayette Boulevard out Lafayette Boulevard and across the Blue and Gray Parkway, then through Alum Spring Park and across Emancipation Highway (Route 1) to a point near the Idlewild neighborhood, just east of I-95.
Our city features many lovely nature trails inside our parks. Please visit our parks for more information:
