Hiking programs planned at SNP

FRONT ROYAL -- Shenandoah National Park officials will host two family-oriented hiking programs this summer, starting with one session that is set to begin on Saturday.

Park officials will host two "Hiking with Children" seminars on Saturday and July 17 from 10 a.m. to noon, according to a news release. The programs are geared toward parents and children who want to hike together and "have a worry-free experience," the release says.

Jeff Alt, a father of two and author of the book "A Walk for Sunshine," will give families tips on how they can experience nature together on the trails within Shenandoah National Park. Both programs will include a short hike with Alt and park rangers on one of the park's trails, the news release states. The hiking program is free, but reservations are requested.

There is a $15 per-car entrance fee to the park, which is good for seven days. Saturday is Shenandoah Neighbors' Day, and the park will waive entrance fees for those who live in Warren, Rockingham, Rappahannock, Page, Madison, Greene, Augusta and Albemarle counties, officials said.
