Wintergreen Resort: Virignia's mountaintop playground

Last week Bill and I traveled on a writing assignment to Wintergreen resort, just south of Charlottesville, VA, and on the edge of the Blue Ridge Parkway.

We left our home at sea level and within hours were hiking (actually huffing and puffing) on some of the resort’s 30 miles of trails, with GPS in hand for a geo-caching scavenger hunt.

The ridge-top resort has condos and homes for rent, 4 or 5 really great restaurants, tennis, golf, a spa, nature center, and an adventure center with climbing tower, bungee trampoline and indoor arcade. Not to mention skiing in the winter! It’s truly a paradise for active families.

Our piece on this 11,000 acre playground will appear the September issue of the Washingtonian. We’ll let you know when it comes out!

In the meantime, read our article on enjoying the spa after a rigorous backpacking trip.
