JEEP LIFE AND THE GREAT OUTDOORS
"Not all those who wander are lost"
Spending some time in Virginia, I was jonesing to see the country. (I love finding the beauty this country has to offer us) After driving through the backroad farmlands, and hooking up at a few of the greatest fishing spots I've ever been to, it was time to hit the mountains!
Short on time, I decided to hit the Cascades National Recreational Trail. It's the perfect little 4 mile (round trip) day hike up a beautiful waterfall that backdrops the shadey mountain trail.
Tucked in the Jefferson National Forrest means nothing but a beautiful green, lush, scenic view for as far as the eye can see. There are some steep moments along the way, but for the most part, it's an easy walk. Great for everyone.
A picnic area sits at the entrance of the trail, so be sure to pack a lunch! Oh, and don't forget your 3 bucks for parking. It's a bit on a honor system there, so make sure you chip in. It helps keep our trails clean, maintained and open for everyone to enjoy.
