Outdoors

If you love hiking, camping and the great outdoors, bring your love to Charlottesville and Albemarle County, where outdoor enthusiasts can adventure at every altitude and every speed!

By land there's hiking, disc golf, and horseback riding, and if you are looking for something a little splashier, wet your appetite for adventure with tubing, canoeing, kayaking and rafting. There are even hot air ballooning, high ropes courses and skydiving if you prefer your adventures sky-high.

You can also find fun in any season, because when the weather cools, the region delivers first-rate skiing, snowboarding and snow tubing, as well as many ways to enjoy the changing seasons.

Many of the area's outdoor excursions are led by local experts and experienced survivalists, but the area offers acres and acres of land and water for solo exploration, whether along the miles of the Rivanna Trail, the 100+ miles of the Appalachian Trail in nearby Shenandoah National Park or across miles of wilderness areas jointly maintained by Charlottesville and Albemarle County, including the Ragged Mountain and Ivy Creek natural areas.

Some of our historical landmarks such as Monticello and Montpelier have wonderful, scenic trails to explore.
