This relatively new Virginia state park south of Front Royal is well known for its boating access to the South Fork of Shenandoah River. But it also has an extensive network of hiking trails. Today’s offering starts from near the Horse Barn and follows the Bear Bottom, Big Oak, Redtail Ridge, Tulip Popular, Culler’s, Bluebell and Campground Trails to Culler’s Overlook for a wintertime vista of the river, then continues on the Overlook and Turkey Roost Trails to the Massanutten Shelter. Long hikers add a loop on the Point Trail.
