Walking along the Rappahannock River on the Heritage Trail, watching the people in tubes maneuver the waters is such a fun sport! Actually, I wanted to be in the tube in the 95 degree weather on the hot summer afternoon. They had the right idea!! Thinking I would walk the 3.1 mile loop make me stop in my tracks when I was drenched with sweat within 1/2 mile. Well, it was great to see so many enjoying the trail on bike and walking their dogs, but I had to head back to the car. I’ll choose a cooler day!

Begin at 3008 Normandy Ave., Fredericksburg and you will return to your car when you finish the loop.
