SKY MEADOWS STATE PARK, VA: MODERATE HIKE PAIRED WITH A VISIT TO A CIDER BARN AND A COMBINED WINERY & BREWERY.

Whatever your favorite drink, we've got you covered, with visits to a cidery, winery & brewery.

This moderate 4-mile loop hike in Sky Meadows State Park offers some of the most spectacular views in the area. The hike begins at a historic pre-Civil War era farm, winds through beautiful pastures and meadows and ascends through the forest to the ridgeline where you’ll have a chance to hike along a section of the well-known Appalachian Trail. At the end of the hike, you’ll be rewarded with a stunning vista of beautiful mountain farmland.  

After earning our drinks during the hike, we'll travel to the Mt. Defiance Cider Barn and quench our thirst with a sampling of delicious cider. From there, we will head down the road to Quattro Goombas Winery and Brewery, where you’ll find everything from wine slushies and tastings, to beer flights, live music, and a pizzeria.
