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 Rappahannock River Heritage Trail is a 1.6 mile asphalt stretch that connects the two parts of the Canal Path making a 3.1 mile loop, just about right for a 5K charity walk.  

Great for walkers and bike riders of all ages.

Trails are open all day, year round.
