Located minutes from Luray Caverns just across the storied Shenandoah River
Powell’s Fort Valley is often referred to as the small valley within the valley, being centrally located in the greater and much more famous Shenandoah Valley.
In this secluded rural enclave, enjoy guided horseback trail riding at Fort Valley Ranch and Stables. A group or family ride through the Ranch turns into a selection of trails with direct access to the George Washington National Forest. Fort Valley is the only valley stables with permitted access to these protected federal lands.
Choose from 1 or 1 ½ hour rides or a half day ride into the National Forest or a full day to the highest peak in the area. For couples or families with cowpokes too young to ride a horse, a horse or mule drawn wagon ride through the Ranch and along the country roads is another popular option.
After your ride, relax away the rest of the day on the Ranch- throw some horseshoes or dip a pole in one of our bass stocked ponds. For an evening of admiring the starry Shenandoah skies, consider over-nighting in one of the Ranch Bunkhouses. Each includes a full kitchen (with all the conveniences of home), full bathroom and even DirecTV and Wi-Fi. For more information visit https://www.fortvalleyranch.com
