I just discovered this beautiful hike along the Shenandoah River leading into the Rolling Ridge Foundation lands (1,400 undeveloped acres)! This beautiful and easy hike includes a walk along the Shenandoah River and then into the forest of the Rolling Ridge Foundation lands. https://www.su.edu/cool-spring/visitor-information/trails/

We will stop at the waterfall along the way for a snack and continue to the Appalachian Trail for an overview of this beautiful area. We will pass a Blue Heron rookery (spectacular) and a Bald Eagle nesting site along the way. You may want to bring a pair of binoculars. When I walked here with my son on Saturday I saw a Bald Eagle gliding overhead! Remember to bring a snack, water and shoes appropriate for some muddiness on the Rolling Ridge trail.

Please look at the link for directions and descriptions of this beautiful area. https://www.su.edu/cool-spring/visitor-information/maps/

Twin Oaks Winery and Hill High Marketplace off of Rt. 7 (covered wagon) are some lovely places to visit on the way home (if you are heading East)
