Our  Intro to Flyfishing  Trip is one of the best in Virginia.. A great little  walking experience starting from the Lodge front door that our guests guests all love is  the little Woods Creek Trail  Loop in town which follows a dandy little stream, Start from the Lodge and do either  3.5 or 5 miles without leaving the town. Enjoy both VMI and W&L campuses as well wildlife along the way. The Chessie Trails to trails  5 minutes drive from the Lodge is a down and back trail which follows the very scenic Maury River- wildlife viewing is usually great.  We have several more  loop hikes that include portions of the Appalachian Trail.

SPOTLIGHT ON THE APPALACHIAN TRAIL THIS MONTH- 12- 16 miles From the Lodge, we have several loop hikes which gives our hikers a chance to walk a part of it. One great thing about our Llewellyn Lodge location is the fairly short distance to the Appalachian Trail.  I have several top of chart loop hikes that I recommend that include walking 1-5 miles on this nationally acclaimed linial park. One is a 5.75 one that rewards you with a 360 degree view at 4050' above sea level. Another 7 miler takes you up a beautiful native Brook trout stream, tyou then transverse the AT and complete the loop down another very scenic native trout stream. Yet another offering which can include the AT rakes you up the highest set of waterfalls East of the Mississippi. I'll be happy to help you plan a personilized  1 or multiple day adventure.
