Things to do on the South River in Virginia

The South River in Virginia offers a wide variety of recreational opportunities, including fishing, canoeing, swimming, hiking, mountain biking, picnicking and birdwatching.

The South River begins as a small, meandering stream, but large springs increase the flow as it approaches the City of Waynesboro. Portions of the watershed are near the Blue Ridge Parkway, Shenandoah National Park and Skyline Drive, the Appalachian Trail, Grand Caverns, and other tourist destinations.

That’s just one of the reasons why fishing there has become a destination for locals and visitors alike. (Stocking trout doesn’t hurt either!)
