Shenandoah National Park

Extreme sports for families abound in Shenandoah National Park. Hike any of the 500 miles of trails, explore on horseback or bike along the famed Skyline Drive. Mountain views and wildlife watching, from white-tailed deer, black bear, fox, river otter and minks make the park magical. Stay overnight at Skyland Resort, Big Meadows Lodge or cabins at Lewis Mountain

Shenandoah National Park is a beautiful, historic national treasure which includes the scenic 105-mile long Skyline Drive - a designated National Scenic Byway.

The Park covers the crest of Virginia's Blue Ridge Mountains for over seventy-five miles. The Appalachian Trail roughly parallels the Skyline Drive and about 101 miles of this trail run through the Park. There are over 500 miles of hiking trails.

Park Ranger programs are offered. Current list is available in the "Shenandoah Overlook". Camping is available in the Park as are modern lodge facilites at Skyland Resort and Big Meadows Lodge. Full-service restaurants are at Skyland and Big Meadows plus there are "waysides" with lighter food.
