Hiking & Rock Climbing

Hiking opportunities are unparalleled in the Waynesboro area!

In town, Waynesboro’s parks offer a number of walking / jogging trails to please the outdoor enthusiast. Among our newest additions is the Greenway Trail, a 0.8-mile paved trail that follows the South River, and winds among the industrial section of town. The second phase of the greenway, connecting Constitution Park to North Park, is currently under development, and future phases plan to extend the Greenway to Ridgeview Park, Basic Park, and eventually a series of trails connecting to the Crozet Tunnel from the old landfill.  Follow updates on the Parks and Recreation website.

Outside of town, a short three-mile drive will take visitors to either the Blue Ridge Parkway or Skyline Drive. Hundreds of trails can be accessed here, including the Appalachian Trail.

Additionally, rock-climbing instruction and excursions can be arranged through Blue Ridge Mountain Guides in Wintergreen, VA. These certified guides cater to all ages and climbing abilities. See their website below for details.
