About the Event
$26. Long hike: 11.5 mi. Moderate hike: 6 mi. Rolling hills on both hikes, with a few hundred feet elevation gain.
After a stop at the Visitors’ Center to watch a short orientation film and view the exhibits, we’ll visit Mary’s Heights and the famous “Sunken Road” that shielded Confederate soldiers from Union fire. We’ll proceed to other sections of the Confederate lines. Moderate hikers will have time to spend in historic Fredericksburg before we return to Washington. Note: $2 fee at Visitors' Center for the orientation film.
