Old Rag Mountain Hike

Shenandoah National Park, VA 29.8 mi away
#1 of 21 Nature & Parks in Shenandoah National Park
We loved the challenge of the hike, scrambling over rocks, wading through some high creeks, listening to the water rush in the larger streams and rivers, and especially having the trail virtually to ourselves.
Easy at the foot of the mountain and gets more challenging on top when you have to climb big boulders, but it is totally worth it as the views are amazing all around.
#1 of 9 Nature & Parks in Luray
We have been visiting Shenandoah National Park every other year for the last 30 years and Autumn at Stony Man Mountain is our favorite and an automatic must-do trail.
The Stony Man Hike is an easy hike with slight to moderate inclines and a well marked trail that is very easy to follow.

Hawksbill Mountain

Shenandoah National Park, VA 25.1 mi away
#2 of 21 Nature & Parks in Shenandoah National Park
... and you enjoy hiking up tall mountains and taking pictures of spectacular landscapes, you should plan to tackle one of the trails that leads to the summit of Hawksbill Mountain in Shenandoah National Park.
... third option, Hawksbill Loop, because it often pops up on lists people make of the “best National Park day hikes”, and also because it gave us the chance to hike at least a small part of the Appalachian trail.

Whether you're a day hiker or a section hiker (I'm omitting thru-hikers, since they'll inevitably do this part), I highly recommend strolling through the Shenandoah National Park.

Seneca Rocks State Park

Seneca Rocks, WV 37.3 mi away
#1 of 3 Nature & Parks in Seneca Rocks
The trail is strenuous in sections, but they did a good job of cutting in the switchbacks and making the 1 mile hike doable for most people.
While the less than 3 mile trail to the top of the rocks seemed to be the main trail, there were a lot of offshoots that were fun to explore, mostly for rock climbers to get to the face of the rocks.
#1 of 15 Nature & Parks in Roanoke
It is breathtaking to catch sight of a fish jumping out of the Roanoke River during a leisurely stroll along the greenway path, or to come upon a grove of wildflowers or flowering trees.

#1 of 3 Nature & Parks in Harrisonburg
I’m sure spring flowers & buds are delightful, but this was a first visit with grandparents who were amazed by the beautiful floral displays, colour combinations, well maintained paths and beautiful landscaping!
A very nice relaxing area, great for a picnic and right next to the basketball arena, (Arena is blocked by trees) lots of ducks, turtles and plants, great for families.

Luray Caverns

Luray, VA
#2 of 9 Nature & Parks in Luray
The caverns have magnificent stalactites and stalagmites, massive domed spaces, drapery formations, extensive water features and a Great Organ built into the Rock formations.
Hands down definitely worth the relatively short trek from DC. From the moment we walked into the caves, I immediately felt like I was walking into a National Geographic special!

White Oak Canyon Trail

Syria, VA 27.4 mi away
#1 of 1 Nature & Parks in Syria
We were unsure of the weather as storms were expected so we decided on the shorter hike from the lower falls parking lot to the first waterfall, which is right around 1.5 miles from the parking lot.
White oak canyon has been one of my favorite trails in Shenandoah National Park for a while.

Our tour guide, Jake, was very knowledgeable and gave us a great tour, which felt personal and unrehearsed.

From the observation platform, which is railed in and has several benches to rest upon, you can see the mountains that make up Shenandoah National Park.
The path is very easy to walk on and the end is an outstanding view of river, trees and valley.
