We will start in in Damascus and head north through the famous Grayson Highlands State Park with its wild ponies, McAfee Knob – the most photographic point on the trail, along the Blue Ridge, into Shenandoah National Park and to northern Virginia. Learn about this 600 mile segment of the famous trail that runs from Georgia to Maine and how to enjoy it in all seasons.
