The Great Outdoors
A 45-minute drive from town & a $30 entrance fee (for a vehicle). This national park does not disappoint! The closest entry point from Harrisonburg is on US Rt 33 (near mile-marker 65 in the park/Swift Run Gap). From there, head north to points in the Central District of the park or head south to points in the South District. Check the park website for hikes, waterfalls, & accessibility.
