The Shenandoah Valley is beautiful in all four seasons, and there are plenty of campgrounds to choose from. If you’re planning on enjoying the spectacular fall scenery, it’s best to book your ground in advance.

Keep it simple, especially with trekking, where you will need to be comfortable carrying all your essential equipment. Don’t attempt anything too ambitious to start with, and you may also find it more reliable and enjoyable to go with a group of likeminded and experienced trekkers.

Warmth at night is a priority, so don’t compromise on sleeping bag quality, and try to insulate yourself from the ground as much as possible.
