Virginia View of Farmland Icon

cool to know

More of the A.T. passes through Virginia than any other state, and views from overlooks reveal pastoral scenes that are a mix of forest and farmland.
In Shenandoah National Park, you can cross the A.T. more than 30 times without getting out of your car. 

Shenandoah National Park Sign

need to know

Shenandoah National Park, with 104 miles of well-maintained Trail and climbs rarely exceeding 500 or 1,000 feet, is great for beginners.
Remember, though, that backcountry permits are required when camping in the park.
