Welcome to my new series, Walking Fredericksburg. This series will actually check a bunch of boxes for me both professionally and personally, so I’ll share my reasons for doing it.
1. I get to be outside and take pictures.
2. I get my daily exercise, which I really need.
3. You folks get to see more of Fredericksburg vicariously through me.
4. I get to hang out with this guy:
So the Heritage Trail is an asphalt path that follows the Rappahannock alongside Fredericksburg on the northwest side of the city. It connects a couple other paths in the city, which I will also walk eventually. This one was opened in 2013 and is one of the better things our city has done for its residents. Its about 3.1 miles round trip, so its a good morning walk.
The trail has plenty of benches with scenic views, trashcans and doggie clean up stations along the way, so you can really just show up with your dog and a bottle of water and not worry about anything. Blue loved it, although I don’t let him socialized with other dogs.
I did the full trail and it took me an hour and 20 minutes, so I would definitely recommend this for a healthy hike. You can make it last longer by connecting to one of the other paths, but I found that to be the perfect walk for me and my canine friend. If you have any questions or want more info, check these links out.
And enjoy a few more pictures of my walk. More to come!
