Outdoor Activities

If the outdoors is your thing, Shenandoah is the place to be! With over 500 miles of hiking trails, and almost all of its 196,000 acres open to backcountry camping, you can spend your entire vacation outdoors! You'll find unique opportunities for birdwatching, wildlife viewing, discovering the natural world, or simply gazing across the horizon.
