In this episode, Bill takes a walk in Alum Spring Park on a newly developed self-guided trail with Callie Brown, Outdoor Recreation Supervisor with Fredericksburg Parks, Recreation, & Events. This new trail is amazing in its remote feel and link to nature and history. It is hard to imagine, when on the trail, that you are within yards of U.S. 1 and the Blue Gray Parkway. For more information on this trail and other Fredericksburg Parks and Rec activates, go to FredParksRec.com. For more information about what to do in Fredericksburg, visit VisitFred.com.
