Massanutten Mountain is home to Virginia's largest Off Highway Vehicle (OHV) trail system that includes Peters Mill Run and Taskers Gap. The Peters Mill access point is just three miles from the store. You can buy Annual ($30 - calendar year), 3-Day ($12 - consecutive days), and 1-Day ($5 - calendar day) passes at the store. It's a good idea to call ahead to confirm our supply of passes, especially if you are bringing a large group of drivers, and to confirm that the trails are open that day. Please be advised that the trails are closed January - March and may be temporarily closed as a result of bad weather. Please call before you travel.
Massanutten Mountain has trails for all levels of hikers and cyclists, and it's the venue for several endurance marathons, including equestrian endurance rides. We carry Potomac Appalachian Trail Club (PATC) maps and books, but there are numerous online resources, or you can contact PATC directly. PATC is always looking for volunteers to help improve and maintain trails.
There are a couple of ranches that provide boarding, horseback riding by the hour, and camping with horses.
There are numerous campgrounds within a few miles of the Fort Valley Country Store. In addition to private camp hosting sites, Elizabeth Furnace, Little Fort, and Camp Roosevelt are well-maintained National Forest sites. Some charge a fee. Others don't. For more information on these and other campgrounds, contact the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) Forest Service, Lee Ranger the District.
Massanutten Mountain is a hunter's paradise.
