Day Hikes / Wine Tasting

Hi -

Does anyone know of a great day hike close to Arlington? We would be going this weekend. Also, if you know of a nearby winery to drop in for a tasting that would be great. Primary concern is a beautiful hike. Both of us are athletic. Thanks!

Here are a few places to consider for hiking......

Under 30 minutes from Arlington is Great Falls Park. There is a easy scenic trail, about 5 miles round trip, follows the falls and Potomac River to an outlying parking area. Pick up a map at the Visitor Center and you'll see it. For a bit more challenge, cross to the MD side and do the Billy Goat Trail, very busy on the weekends, almost one person after another, the trail is rocky and desends steeply to the river.

About 30-40 minute drive is Prince William Forest Park in Dumfries. Miles of trails, wooded, scenic, sure to find something you'll enjoy.

The northern entrance to Shenandoah National Park at Front Royal is about 75 minutes from Arlington. Check some of the trails in that area of the park, for example Mary's Rock, scenic hike to great views, moderate difficulty.

Happy Trails
