Fredericksburg offers riding to all types of cyclists ranging from highly technical mountain bike trails to leisurely riding through town, all the way to going a century ride in on your road bicycle. Here on this page we would like to give you some ideas on places you can ride and some of our favorite routes in the area.
ALUM SPRINGS PARK
Discover this hidden treasure within our city limits! This wooded park is located at the end of Greenbrier Drive extended. It is equipped with a renovated picnic shelter, picnic tables, restrooms, grills, play equipment, walking paths, and fitness trail. This wooded park is a great place for children to play, even during the warmest days of the summer the shade trees keep it cool. Stop by and see for yourself, we think you'll agree, the place looks great!LOCATE THE PARK >
CANAL PATH / HERITAGE TRAIL
The Canal path is a paved pathway that is 1.8 miles long and winds along the canal from Fall Hill Avenue to Princess Anne Street. The Heritage Trial is a 1.6 mile asphalt stretch that connects the two parts of the Central Path making a 3.1 mile loop. Just about right for a 5K race. The new portion of trail, which is 10 feet wide, begins near the intersection of Princess Anne and Ford streets at the end of the Rappahannock Canal.LOCATE THE PARK >
