In Fredericksburg the Canal Path/Heritage Trail is a great place to take the kids for some exercise. The Canal Path is 1.8 miles and the Heritage Trail is 1.6 miles. They connect together to make a 3.1 mile loop. The loop is paved and has a bike path. Not only is this path scenic, with most of the path running along the water, it is also a great place to learn more about the history of Fredericksburg. Along the path, there are many markers and signs that tell about landmarks and explain historical events. In addition, it is easy to make a stop at the playground at Old Mill Park for a break or Carl’s for a sweet treat!
