Hiking the Appalachian Trail?
The Shenandoah Valley has four designated Appalachian Trail Communities. Take a break and visit Buena Vista, Glasgow, Harrisonburg and Waynesboro.
The Appalachian Trail Community™ program is designed to recognize communities that promote and protect the Appalachian Trail (A.T.). Towns, counties, and communities along the A.T.’s corridor are considered assets by A.T. hikers and many of these towns act as good friends and neighbors to the Trail. The program serves to assist communities with sustainable economic development through tourism and outdoor recreation, while preserving and protecting the A.T.
