Rappahannock Station is today known as Remington and lies about halfway between Warrenton and Culpeper. This small town covers much of the battlefield making a visit difficult. Please respect the rights of property owners. To reach the battlefield from Fredericksburg, take Rt. 3 west to Culpeper, then take Rt. 15/29 north from Culpeper toward Warrenton. Approximately 7 miles north of Culpeper you will see a sign directing you to Remington via Business Rt. 15/29. Pull off the road at this point. Read the walking tour of the Battle of Remington.
Pedal through history on one of Remington’s bicycle trails and see why the small town is on the crossroads of history. Trails marked for three-, six- and 12-mile rides take visitors through the beautiful Virginia countryside surrounding Remington. Provided by Remington Community Partnership, the tours are also available in Town Hall. Download the Remington Civil War Bicycle Tour PDF
