It would take months to enjoy every hiking trail and mountain view in Shenandoah. So if you only have a week or weekend to spare, here are the five things you have to do this year.

  1. Hike to a mountain summit and enjoy the views. Consider tackling a portion of the Appalachian Trail.
  2. Go chasing waterfalls. There’s Dark Hollow Falls, Lewis Falls and many more.
  3. Up for adventure? Rock climbing and rappelling are perfect Shenandoah activities.
  4. The night skies in Shenandoah are out of this world. The heavens look endless out here, far away from artificial city light.
  5. Head out into Big Meadows around dusk and watch as the white-tailed deer emerge. You may even see a black bear.

Looking for Shenandoah lodging? There are several great options.

Big Meadows Lodge provides all the comforts of a country vacation, with welcoming accommodations right near beautiful Big Meadows. Or, explore Shenandoah from the rustic and cozy Lewis Mountain Cabins.

Now is the perfect time to exhale with your loved ones, far out in the Blue Ridge Mountains.
