“Lead Me To The Cross”

Cross Mountain Park
Ranked #37 of 106 things to do in Fredericksburg
Attraction details
Reviewed July 2, 2014

It was a nice little hike, enjoyed the history behind it. It looked like there may have been several paths to the cross to see in different angles, but we did not take them. I was saddened how it was not taken care of around there.

This place brings back many years of hiking to the top and taking the time to just sit and look out over Fredericksburg.

This is a city park, but is really a small hiking mountain. It's in town, so conveniently accessed. Great exercise, but not overly strenuous. My dogs love it, and it's a great way for a short outing and exercise without a long drive. On top is a cross that is lit at night (hence the name Cross Mountain).

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.

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.
