Fredericksburg & Spotsylvania National Military Park will once again combine health and history with a new series of “Fit-History” hikes this fall. These ranger-led hikes are designed to cover a lot of ground in addition to a lot of history. Including shorts stops for rest and history, we try to average 2 miles per hour. All hikes begin at 10 a.m.

When attending any of our Fit-History programs, please remember to wear sturdy shoes, bring plenty of water, and pack a snack. Bug spray and long pants are also suggested.
