Hiking and climbing in RVA
A place to earn a breathtaking view
Hike here. Climb here. Find a secret place away from it all. This region is a glorious mixture of urban, nature and challenge. In the city’s Forest Hill Park, the Buttermilk and North Bank trails give hikers gorgeous views while staying close to downtown. Pocahontas State Park, Pony Pasture and Henricus Historical Park are enclaves of natural escape. Downtown, the Manchester Climbing Wall lets you climb with the skyline as a backdrop while honing your skills on walls and boulders. Climb inside at Peak Experiences or the Triangle Rock Club, or catch the pros as they compete every year at Dominion Energy Riverrock on Brown’s Island. Get moving. And get vertical, if you’d like.
