A 26 acre forest oasis with a stream sometimes flowing through the center. Over a mile of flagged, cleared trails for you and your pooch to get some exercise and lots of interesting sniffs! Stoney Run, a small stream, traverses the property, and is accessible from several trail locations. As a circuit you will walk over a couple of miles just on the trail. The rest of the 26 acres is also free to roam, but typically tree covered. The farm animals are fenced in an acre area. Our dogs can easily be put inside and our Pyrenees detained, if your pooch isn’t interested or ready for that sort of interaction. Typically our big guy, Titan, is a wonderful part of our visiting dog’s experience. But that will be left entirely up to you. You can hit the trails and chase some squirrels. Our beautiful, forested Shenandoah Valley parcel will be yours to sniff about freely.
Our property is 25 acres of country beneath Tinker Cliffs. The roadside is approximately 5 acres and is the home place and 20 acres is wooded trails and a Little Catawba Creek. There is a beach area with a swimming hole for dogs and shallower rock ripple areas for romping around. The area does have wild animals but that is to be expected. Please be considerate of property lines and keep dogs on leash if they are not trained to stay near. Dogs that will stay near can be off leash and have freedom to run but please know that your dog will see wild animals such as deer that may entice them to chase. There is easy parking located at a safe distance from the road (approximately 130 yards). Please call ahead for initial tour of trails. Close toe shoes with tread are recommended. Trails can be slippery in a few spots near the natural spring. Trails are mowed and mostly shaded. Hats are also recommended although ticks are not bad. Access will be restricted during hunting season.
This is the site of a forming intentional community. We are making it livable one step at a time. We bought the land cleared and in the meantime, use our 200+ acres to host hip camp, make bike trails and kayak out in areas. Attractions: Enter into one of the main parking areas by the house or keep driving! 1/2 mile down the road is another parking area. Keep going on that road and you’ll see a barn. Then, if you eventually curve to the right as you go down hill you might be able to figure out how to get to the big stream. The stream is sandy creek and that leads to the Banister river, which leads to the Dan. In about the middle of that main stretch, there is a road to the left that will bring you to a pond. I take my foxhound dog here while we hike the trails and work on the land. I found her on the side of the highway and found the owner but he didn’t want her back. I was going through a hard time. I did not intend on getting a dog, let alone a former hunting dog with such active needs! She had a lot of issues to figure out. We are both independent creatures which in the beginning was a source of trouble but now is a source of understanding. This land has been a blessing in us finding our balance. I can’t take her most places and let her off leash because her breed habit is to wander. She needs exercise. She has a need to run. She is so happy when we come here. She knows it means freedom. If it wasn’t for places like this, I would have a very frustrated pup! This place has helped us love each other. I hope you can experience the same!
100 plus acre property, woods, trails, wildlife
There is a 8 foot wide, half mile path that runs the perimeter of a 6 acre wooded lot. The path is mulched. There is no fence, but lined by trees. If your dog has good recall, they are free to roam, as are you. Its a beautiful, peaceful and serene walk around a quiet wooded area. There is some terrain, and good for a runner as well. You will be required to pick up after your dog.
