If you’re looking to access one of the best views Massanutten has to offer via your own two feet, look no further than the Massanutten Ridge Trail. This 4.5-mile, moderately trafficked out-and-back, offers stellar views of the nearby ski area and the mountains surrounding Massanutten. To access the trailhead, start at the parking lot at the end of Del Webb Drive.
For an added bonus, consider timing your hike with a sunrise or a sunset and be sure to come prepared with sturdy hiking boots and plenty of water!
