In recent years, the Shenandoah Valley’s traditional reputation for scenic beauty, history and caverns, has grown to include a new wave of outdoor adventure.
Bounded by Shenandoah National Park to the east, George Washington National Forest to the west, and with a storied river flowing down the middle, the Shenandoah Valley offers endless outdoor opportunities: choose from about 500 miles of trails to backpack In Shenandoah National Park – 40 percent of which is Wilderness–or hike a section of the 2,200-mile Appalachian Trail. Rent a mountain cabin, cycle back roads or pavement all day and finish up with a bottle of crisp Virginia wine and a hot tub.
Float the river by canoe, kayak or tube; fish for smallmouth bass; go for a guided horseback ride to spectacular mountain scenery. Take the kids to Massanutten Outdoor WaterPark , now offering private cabana rentals and the Chill Grill outdoor eatery.
Of course, don’t forget golf, ATV riding and even ziplining!
In the Shenandoah Valley, the time of your life is waiting…
