“Great view at the top of mountain”
Reviewed April 29, 2013

This is a nice place to visit, short climb to the top of Cross mountain. Go see the large cross on the top, and you can look down towards the city of Fredericksburg, and see the whole city. Nice view.

“Beautiful View of Fredericksburg”
Reviewed April 4, 2013

Old and young, this hike is very doable. 2 minutes from town and a 4 minute hike to beautiful views of the town of Fredericksburg.

“A Developing Gem”
Reviewed December 13, 2012

Cross Mountain Park was used as a signal mountain for the fredericksburg vallet first by the Indians and later the early settlers as it has a commanding view of the surrounding area. the First Spanish Explorers erected a wooden cross on its summit wheich has now been replaced by a cement white one. The park has been neglected by the city and in fact has inflicted mych damage there to the native plants. Now a local group of concerned citicens has been working there to develop a trail system to keep the foot traffice off the plants. There is a lower trail and a mid level trail completed which makes for a very nice and not too strenuous hike. i hear there are plant to make a trail to the top with steps. Nice plas to visit

“Great place for an exhilarating hike!”
Reviewed December 9, 2012

Cross Mountain is an historic site on the north side of Fredericksburg. The lower and mid-level trails have been improved. Be careful if you opt for the steeper gravelled road, because the gravel in places is like ball bearings. Explanatory plaque at the foot of the mountain and a lighted (at night) cross at the top. There's also a bench at the top with a lovely view. No restrooms, but it's not a very long hike.
