During National Park Week, I encourage all Virginians to visit the Commonwealth's great national parks and enjoy free entry. I am traveling throughout the state and while I probably won't get outdoors this week, I am bringing five friends from around the country to Virginia to join me in exploring Shenandoah National Park in mid-May.
I hope you're able to get outdoors this week to enjoy Virginia's natural beauty, either in our scenic National Parks or on one of Virginia's countless other trails. In honor of National Park Week and this gorgeous spring weather, here are a few of my favorite Virginia hikes:
-Little Devil's Stairs in Shenandoah National Park
-Appalachian trail from the James River to the Tye River
-The loop trail at National Seashore in Chincoteague
-And a special tip for those in Southwest Virginia, the "Little Wilson Creek Wilderness" in the Mount Rogers National Recreation Area is a well-kept secret and a beautiful hike
