Updated: May 20, 2021
A beautiful Virginia state park with rolling pastures, near the Blue Ridge Mountains.
Sky Meadows is a great place for photography. There are beautiful meadows and valleys and it's super picturesque. Being a hiker, I loved hiking the trails. (#skymeadowsstatepark #virginiastateparks #parksnearblueridgemountains)
I absolutely love this state park. It has beautiful farmland with rolling pastures and nice trails, including horse trails. I would love to go back because there are a lot of different hiking trails to explore. It also is a great place to unfold a picnic blanket and relax on a beautiful afternoon.
Eat, Drink & Be Merry
Heading into Virginia for a day trip lends to finding all sorts of places to try, as there are wineries everywhere. (#aspendalewinery #wineriesinvirginia #wineriesnearparisvirginia) We decided on a small but quaint place called Aspen Dale Winery. We shared a flight of whites and a flight of reds. It was nice because they had a tasting of sausages, cheeses, and chocolates that had been paired for each wine.
If you like driving down small, country roads and enjoy farm-like settings and rolling pastures, this state park is for you. This will definitely be a park we will go back to! There are wineries all over the place and you could try a bunch of them. Just make sure someone is the DD!!
