|MainTour Shenandoah Valley Vacation Adventure|
A tangled web of off-trail adventures thru Shenandoah National Park leads to discovery of hidden relics, nature, and history. This is when we might wander off-trail in the backcountry, discover concealed relics and still find our way back.
But, as Eisenfeld writes in a new book that is part history, part hiking ode, this park has in fact been “de-peopled and re-wilded.” To create this vast expanse of nature, hundreds of families who lived and farmed here, who grew orchards and grazed livestock here, had to leave.
