First Day Hike 2023!

Celebrate the new year by joining park rangers and volunteers for the annual First Day Hike at Shenandoah River State Park. We will meet at Cullers Overlook, and two separate guided hikes will be offered:.

Hike 1 is easy to moderate difficulty and will follow a slightly over 3-mile circuit from the Overlook trail to the Visitor Center, then Hemlock Hollow down the hill, along the river on Bluebell and back up the hill on Campground.

Hike 2 will be an easy, simple out and back hike from the Overlook to the Visitor Center and back. This hike will be less than a mile over trail.

The Friends of Shenandoah River State Park will be providing light refreshments at the Visitor Center. Guests are encouraged to bring water, snacks, and enthusiasm for the new year.

Free Parking is available at Cullers Overlook.
