Scavenger hikes turn a walk in the woods into a fun, learning activity for you and your kids. Developed by Kat and John LaFevre, authors of the book Shenandoah Scavenger Hikes, the summer and fall (until November 3) hikes take place every Monday and Wednesday. From the Skyland Resort, the hikes depart at 9 and return at 11 a.m. From Big Meadows Lodge, the walks are from 3 to 5 p.m. Depending on what you find, you receive either a “City Slicker,” “Pioneer Scout” or “Frontier Explorer” certificate plus an autographed copy of the LaFevres’ book. The authors lead some of the hikes, so check in to find out when they’ll be there. Fee: $5 per person; $20 for a family of four. Reserve ahead.
