The Crozet Tunnel Greenway – the Coolest Hike in Virginia – offers a unique opportunity for visitors to visit both sides of the much-visited Blue Ridge Mountains at Rockfish Gap in Central Virginia. The tunnel and trails are part of a regional greenway system. The trail is for hikers and cyclists of every level, watchable wildlife lovers, history enthusiasts, and railroad/engineering buffs. A hike through the tunnel is about a mile long, and those who enter must bring flashlights or headlamps!
In nearby Waynesboro, Ridgeview Park and South River Greenway offers views and the only urban inland fishery in Virginia, along the mile-long trail. While in this historic Virginia Main Street Downtown, enjoy the Russell or Heritage Museum, the mural trail or the historic districts that make Waynesboro a special place to live and visit.
