Staunton River Loop Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"This adventure follows—and crosses—two major park streams, making late spring–fall the best time to undertake the hike. Also, the waterways provide good swimming and fishing opportunities at that time. To make this a long day hike you will need the long daylight hours of summer.

This can be a very long day hike but is better executed as a backpack. The circuit travels high and low, sporting mountaintop vistas as well as park history. However, most of the adventure is along the Staunton River and its mother stream, the Rapidan River."
