The Massanutten Mountain is a 50-mile-long, six-mile-wide mountain range of ancient sandstone contained within the broad valley of the Shenandoah River. The mountain range separates the north and south forks of the river. Another valley, long and narrow, is wholly contained within the northern half of the Massanutten range. This "small valley within a mountain within a big valley" may be a unique configuration. The Massanutten Trail travels the mountain ridges around the inner valley.
You can explore rocky creeks, passages, and hollows hidden by this mountainous terrain. Many portions of this trail follow old roads or trails allowing you to follow the many footsteps of those who made history in this area.
The 71-mile Massanutten circuit trail was completed in June of 2002. It was constructed and designed to be a multi-purpose trail open to all non-motorized uses and available for use year-round. Sections of the trail are considered difficult for bikes and horses, making the 71-mile circuit most suitable for hikers or other on-foot users.
