This park offers excellent hiking trails plus access to the Appalachian trail and the Virginia Highlands Horse Trail. The scenery here is amazing but the trails are a bit more difficult than in other, lower lying parks. Be careful with slippery rocks and roots and make sure you are always prepared for sudden changes in weather by bringing raingear and extra layers even on short hikes. There are several small shelters along the trails that offer places to stop and wait out a storm. There is also Wise shelter within the park on the Appalachian trail. This offers a place for through-hikers to sleep before they continue their journey. Be sure to try snowshoeing or cross country skiing on some of the trails when winter comes.
