Walks in the Woods

Posted on June 12, 2019

Here at Early Mountain we take every opportunity to head into the hills and celebrate the natural beauty that surrounds our 300 acre property in Madison, VA. While these endeavors can easily be an all day affair, say tackling Mt. Rag, we encourage you to blend effort with fun and fit in a visit to a local Virginia winery.

Our friends up the road at Getaway have shared an array of half-day hikes that fit well with an afternoon relaxing at Early Mountain sipping Rosé enjoying the mountain views.

Hightop Mountain
Distance: 5.6 miles, about 3 hours
Difficulty: Easy
Dogs allowed on-leash
An easy hike up the highest peak in the South District of Shenandoah National Park, Hightop Mountain offers excellent view to the south and west from the second overlook.

White Oak Canyon Trail
Distance: 9.5 miles, about 4-5 hours
Difficulty: Hard
Dogs allowed on-leash
If you’re in search of waterfalls, head out on White Oak Canyon Trail. It can be a strenuous hike, but you can also adjust your mileage and make it shorter by skipping some of the sections.

Blue Hole
Distance: 2.5 miles, about 1.5 hours
Difficulty: Easy
Dogs allowed on-leash
For even more water, hike Moorman’s Trail to Blue Hole and spend some time soaking in the swimming hole before heading back to your cabin.

We'll see you soon!
