“Beautiful at night”
Reviewed May 13, 2014

You can only get to the top via foot. Recommend taking a flashlight, going to the top right before sunset, just sit there and view the city lights at night, and then be careful coming back down at night. It's beautiful.

“Sad”
Reviewed August 22, 2013

So neglected that I am surprised it is even called a park. All there is is a historical marker. The cross cannot be seen due to the neglect. Shameful.

“Great views”
Reviewed July 11, 2013 via mobile

This place is a fun quick trip right outside the city. Not many people around and doesn't seem overused (or even well known). Great views overlooking Fredericksburg and on the way to Enchanted Rock. We took a small path up the the top (15 minute hike) but there is a sloping gravel path that takes you gradually up (maybe 20-25 minute walk?).

I recommend stopping here.

“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.
