Hunting: With hunting season underway, hikers across Virginia are encouraged to wear at least one item of blaze orange for safety. General hunting and shooting is not permitted at the Blue Ridge Center. Periodically, managed hunts by trained personnel are planned at specific, posted times when trails are closed. If you see hunting or shooting activity when trails are open, immediately call the Loudoun County Sheriff’s Office at 703-777-0407 and contact us.

10 miles of hiking to explore streams, spot wildlife, and imagine life in a 19th century farming community. Free to the public every day from dawn till dusk.

Whether solo or with 400 Scouts, enjoy a picnic and fire pits under the clear night sky. Or, spend the night in a restored 1840’s farmhouse.

900 preserved acres of Virginia’s Piedmont. Protected streams flowing into the Potomac, sustainable farming, diverse flora and fauna, and wildlife from butterflies to bears.

The Blue Ridge Center is a nonprofit organization that manages nearly 900 acres featuring hiking trails through deep woods, babbling streams, a working farm, wildflower meadows, and historic farmsteads. Located in the western region of Virginia’s Loudoun county, we are a key member of the community – our land protects Potomac River tributaries and the Chesapeake Bay watershed, preserves the Appalachian Trail viewshed, and conserves the natural habitat for hundreds of animal species.
