Description

The First Day at Chancellorsville Trail provides an excellent recreational and educational opportunity for visitors to Spotsylvania County. The gravel and grass path will take you over much of the battlefield of May 1, 1863. Most of the trail is flat and relatively easy to hike. There are two connector trails that can allow for a shorter hike.
