Massanutten Western Slope Trails are CLOSED for Daily Use until Mid-January.
Our beloved trails close to daily use every November 1 as we transition into hunting season in this part of Virginia. You can continue to ride/run/hike the trails on Sundays when hunting is not permitted. You can also access the trails daily (if you have a current trail pass) from 30 minutes after sunset to 30 minutes before sunrise. Stay tuned to learn when the trails will officially reopen for daily use in January.
We will mail you an Annual Trail Pass once you’ve completed the steps below.
No Waiver = No Trail Pass
Step 1: Become a Current Member
If you aren’t already a member of the Shenandoah Valley Bicycle Coalition, you can join us online here. Your membership must be current.
Step 2: Complete the Waiver
All riders much complete an online Waiver EACH YEAR. It’s easy and online: Massanutten’s required risk and release form.
You MUST fill out the emergency contact information and confirm your email address. We will mail the pass to the primary address you provide on the waiver.
On the waiver, you will be prompted to specify how you choose to meet the fee or volunteer requirements for a Trail Pass. You may choose to
- Donate a minimum of $50 FOR EACH ANNUAL TRAIL PASS OR
- Commit to volunteering 6 hours of trail work.
All funds go to the Shenandoah Valley Bicycle Coalition. You don’t have to complete trail work prior to getting your pass unless you have failed to complete the prior year’s trail work.
Step 3: If needed, donate
If you choose to donate for your trail pass, process your payment. Simply donate online, and be sure to include “Massanutten Trail Pass” as a comment on your donation.
We will MAIL you a trail pass as soon as you complete all of the above steps. The pass will be mailed to the address you specified on your waiver. Thank you for joining us on the Western Slopes!
