May 2, 2015 - James River Face Wilderness Hike

Saturday, we headed north to Virginia for a beautiful spring hike through James River Face Wilderness in Jefferson National Forest. We left Chapel Hill a little after 7 and headed north into Virginia. After making a pit stop in Lynchburg, we headed north on US-501 into the forest and drove to the Hellgate Horse Camp off Forest Service Road 815. We left one car here, and then all crammed into the other car and made the short drive up Petites Gap Road (Forest Service Road 35), passing the Belfast Trailhead and parking at the Sulphur Springs...

Oct 18, 2010 - Beautiful drive

Today staying in the Jellystone RV Park in Natural Bridge Station, VA. Went today to visit the town's namesake, the Natural Bridge. Lots of commercialization around it, but once on the trail to the bridge, nature reigns! The area once was the property of Thomas Jefferson and surveyed by George Washington (who left his initials carved into the side of the rock). The bridge was huge, carved by the stream (not even big enough to be called a river this afternoon) running beneath it. The path followed the stream and went far back from the...

Oct 28, 2008 - Blue Ridge Parkway, VA

Yesterday, after lunch, we left our campsite at Luray, Virginia and followed the Blue Ridge Mountains about two hours southwest to Yogi Bear’s Jellystone Park at Natural Bridge Station, Virginia. This is a very nice family camping resort right on the James River. They offer swimming pools, a sandy beach, mini-golf, a new waterslide and tubing, canoeing and fishing on the James River. Of course, all we’re really looking for is wi-fi and a clear spot for the satellite dish and they have that too. It’s a big campground with hardly anybody in...

Jun 2, 2008 - Natural Bridge Station, VA

Natural Bridge Station, VA - Staying here: http://www.campnbr.com/index2.html This was a fun place to visit. The walk to The Natural Bridge is enjoyable, and if you feel like hiking another 3/4 miles slightly uphill, there's a water fall at the end of the trail. Do this in cooler weather! We also visited the caverns down the road. This was a "first time" experience for us both and I'm glad we went. The only other caverns I want to see are the ones in CA.
