IMPORTANT NOTICE ABOUT TRAIL CLOSURES


Peters Mill Run and Taskers Gap OHV trails are OPEN as of Tuesday, October 1, 2019, and we sell Daily, 3-Day and Annual passes at the store. However, trails are closed from time-to-time, and we do run out of passes, so please "call before you haul."


Also, Woodstock Tower Road is closed just west of Peters Mill Run until further notice. The Tower itself is still accessible from the east entrance to Woodstock Tower Road. Stop by the store for directions.

The Great Outdoors

OHV Trails

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, 3-Day, and 1-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 from mid-January - mid-March and  may be temporarily closed as a result of bad weather. Please call before you travel.

Hiking & Cycling

Massanutten Mountain has trails for all levels of hikers and cyclists, and it's the venue for several endurance marathons. We carry a limited supply of Potomac Appalachian Trail Club (PATC) maps, but there are numerous online resources, or you can contact PATC directly. PATC is always looking for volunteers to help improve and maintain trails. 







Camping
