Rode through with three friends on motorcycles as we were riding on an 8 day trip and I thought I'd add some nature to the mix. Beautiful scenery and the roads are well maintained but watch your speed as there are some twisties and the roads are a little narrower. Take your time and enjoy the nature. We got to... More

We hiked up to Spy Rock - an absolutely amazing 360 view form the top! The hike is uphill but lovely and woodsy most of the way - it's a bit of a rock scramble near the top, so be prepared. Don't miss this awesome hike!

Want to get AWAY for the weekend... and enjoy rugged outdoors activities - hiking, mountain biking, fishing, etc.... Well, in SW VA there's the George Washington National Forest which is vast enough to hide many secrets and quiet enough to unwind the mind. Be sure to take a map (road & trail) as it's easy to get lost. Would recommend:... More

I hiked the Cascades trail up to the waterfall. It was beautiful! Note that parking is $3 and you need the exact amount. Don't forget to bring water!

Just AMAZING! And well worth the rental car from DC and the drive time. If you love nature, you can't miss this! The colors were very pretty. We went on a horseback riding tour, drove through the forest and up to the Shenandoah skyline drive. What a day!!! If we go back, I am spending the entire weekend here.

We only went through this forest, but it is worth to stop. Big old trees, little creeks and falls near the road. And it is for free - just stop for awhile and enjoy.

We go camping here a couple of times every year - about a 4-5 hour trip from our home in Southern Maryland. It's breathtaking and very relaxing and it's free!! We are always surprised that not many people take advantage of our National Forests. Hey, you pay taxes on just about everything these days - why not get something back... More

This very large national forest is beautiful! Many trails to choose from ( including one for ATV's) We had a great hike on the Duncan's Knob Trail. At the top is a very large rock scramble that the kids really enjoyed. View at the top was gorgeous and there was lots of room up there to rest and explore before... More
