    Hikes, Bikes & Brews

    by Casey | Posted on August 29th, 2013

    Many of Virginia’s craft breweries happen to be located near great hiking and biking trails. Head out with the ones you love, then come back and settle in for an ice cold beverage and great local hospitality.

    The Priest Overlook

    The Appalachian Trail

    Around the Waynesboro entrance to the Blue Ridge Parkway:

    On the Buena Vista/Lexington side of the Blue Ridge Parkway:

    Into Roanoke off of the Blue Ridge Parkway:

    The Virginia Creeper Trail

    On the western end of the trail, in Abingdon, visit Wolf Hills Brewing Company. To the east and in the middle of the trail sits The Damascus Brewery in none other than Damascus.

    The Virginia Capital Trail

    Bridging the Colonial Capital to today’s Richmond Capital, the “Cap to Cap” runs near Route 5 from Richmond to Williamsburg and you can find these breweries not too far off the beaten path.

    Mount Vernon Trail

    This trail runs from George Washington’s Mount Vernon, along the Potomac River north to Arlington. Concentrate on the Alexandria to Arlington portions  of the trail and find that there are four breweries not too far away.

    Washington &  Old Dominion Trail

    Also in Arlington, if you venture along the W&OD Trail the 44.5 miles to Purcellville, you could encounter six breweries without veering too far out of the way.

    What’s your reward for a day in Virginia’s great outdoors? Find out more about Virginia’s craft breweries and the trails, too, to plan your next excursion.

    LOVE is at the heart of every Virginia vacation.
    Virginia is for Lovers.
