Description

Shenandoah National Park has over 500 miles of trails and roads for visitors to enjoy on foot or horseback. This is one of several old and seldom-used fire roads in the park that was built by the Civilian Conservation Corps.

The Civilian Conservation Corps was a part of President Franklin Roosevelt's New-Deal program. From 1933-1942, thousands of young men lived and worked in CCC camps in and adjacent to the park. The "boys" built rock walls, trails, fire roads, log structures, scenic overlooks, and more. They planted hundreds of thousands of trees and shrubs and are responsible for much of what visitors to Shenandoah see today. This year marks the 75th anniversary of the work of the CCC boys in Shenandoah National Park

These routes can range in grade, tread, and length and are often used on loops or as connections to more popular singletrack trails. For more information on a specific horse trail or access road, please visit the Shenandoah National Park website or call (540) 999-3500.
