Virginia may be for lovers, but it’s also a great state for hikers. Whether you hike parts of the Appalachian Trail or visit Washington’s home Mount Vernon and explore the scenic pathways there or find some backwoods waterfalls to marvel at, there’s hundreds of miles of prime hiking trails in this beautiful state. Shenandoah National Park offers rustic cabins and camping for your home away from home as you hike the many trails. From difficult boulder scrambling up to the peak to easy walks to waterfalls and riverside, the Park hosts trails and hikes to suit everyone. You can find strenuous day-long hikes up steep mountains, medium 1,000 foot climbs and gentle even hikes that even grandmothers and toddlers will enjoy.
Virginia encompasses the Blue Ridge Parkway, parts of the Appalachian Trail and many State and National parks. It’s a wonderland for hikers hungry for vistas and views found only on hilltops and mountain peaks. Civil war battlefields, historic forts and historical markers tell the tales of the war that darkened the area in the mid-19th century. Your hikes can incorporate historical drama or partake only of nature’s offerings of sparkling creeks, roaring waterfalls and winding rivers. Hiking trails are never far away from wherever you roam in Virginia.
