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.
