Hiking Augusta County

November 17th is National Hiking Day, and our real estate agents couldn't think of a better time to enjoy the great outdoors! The weather in Augusta County during November is perfect for trail hiking. With sunny skies and crisp autumn air, now is the perfect opportunity to spend a few nice days outside before the winter comes. Whether you need a relaxing walk or want to take your workout outdoors, head to these trails throughout Augusta County for National Hiking Day.

  • South River Greenway – Arch Ave., Waynesboro, VA 22980
    There are few better ways to enjoy a day outside in Waynesboro than along the South River. The South River Greenway is a 1.2-mile trail that runs along the South River from the Loth Springs parking lot to the Port Republic neighborhood. Eventually, the South River Greenway will be extended to connect to other popular greenspaces, including Sunset Park, Basic Park, and Ridgeview Park. Until then, you can enjoy the exercise station on the trail and reserve the facilities at Dominion Shelter if you want to invite friends for a brisk walk followed by a picnic.

  • Humpback Rocks – Milepost 5.8 on Blue Ridge Parkway, Waynesboro, VA 22980
    One of the most popular and shortest hikes we suggest is up Humpback Rocks. Named for the rock formations atop the viewpoint, the Humpback Rocks trail requires fewer than three hours of hiking time, making it perfect for those who aren't interested in spending the entire afternoon in the wilderness. Although the elevation only climbs by 1,240-feet, the first mile takes you up 800-feet rather briskly. If you'd like to spend the night and enjoy an amazing sunset, you can follow the A.T. South trail (instead of the A.T. North to the Humpback Rocks viewpoint) and enjoy a campsite with room for six.

  • Dobie Mountain – Milepost 5.8 on Blue Ridge Parkway, Waynesboro, VA 22980
    Neighboring Humpback Rocks, the Dobie Mountain hike is a little longer but just as remarkable. It's also less popular than Humpback Rocks, offering you the opportunity to enjoy a more intimate journey. The total hike should take around three-and-a-half hours, though you could extend it from a 4-mile hike to a 6.8-mile hike if you head to the shelter for a lunch break. Those afraid of heights should know that there is a series of switchbacks on the trail with drops of 700-feet.

    • Dripping Rocks via Appalachian Trail – Lyndhurst, VA 22952
      Another fantastic out and back hike that you can easily tackle on National Hiking Day is the Drippings Rocks trail. Part of the Appalachian Trail, you can quickly conquer this trail in fewer than two hours. In fact, it's a quieter and shorter alternative to the Humpback Rocks trail. Dripping Rocks is 1.7-miles total and only has an elevation gain of 564-feet. Very close to Lyndhurst homes for sale, this rocky trail is great for walks with friends, older children, and dogs. Be prepared for a few steep areas that are well worth the few.

    • Riprap Hollow – Shenandoah National Park, 3655 U.S. Highway 211 East, Luray, VA 2283
      For a change of scenery outside of George Washington National Forest, head over to the Shenandoah National Park to hike the Riprap Hollow trail. Located just outside of many wonderful neighborhoods with great Augusta County homes for sale, the Riprap Hollow trail is a circuit hike for novice and experienced hikers. Factor in around five hours for the hike, longer if you plan on shooting some wildlife photography.
