There are several lovely hikes with trail heads starting around Madison. Check out White Oak Canyon, Old Rag or the lesser known Graves Mill trail. Great swimming holes on a hot day!

What more is there to say? There is a fee for the park. The skyline drive will take you to the park. About 10 miles away!

A short drive on Route 33 through Harrisonburg lands you at the Swift Run entrance to this incredible National Park. Trails for abilities of all ages, some of which are a part of the famed Appalachian Trail. Plenty of overlooks and picnic areas to enjoy a scenic drive if that is more your speed. …
