Want an equine experience unlike any other? Get ready to head to Fort Valley Ranch and Stables. This real-working ranch is the only of its kind with access to George Washington National Forest. You will find yourself enjoying the scenic route, as you take in the usual twists and turns of a guided group or family ride through these federally protected lands.​

Fort Valley Ranch and Stables offers riding packages for participants of all skill levels and enthusiasm. Choose between a 60 or 90-minute tour or take a half-day or full-day ride into the National Forest up into some of the highest peaks in the area. For couples or families with cowpokes too young to saddle up, a horse or mule-drawn wagon ride through the Ranch and along the country roads may be just the right amount of family fun.​

After the adventure, spend the day relaxing. Fort Valley Ranch offers a number of lowkey activities from friendly games of horseshoe to fishing in our bass-stocked ponds.

At night, gather ’round the campfire, take in the starry Shenandoah sky above, then retire to one of our handsomely appointed Ranch Bunkhouses. Each Wi-Fi capable bunkhouse includes a full bathroom, a kitchen – replete with all the conveniences of home – and even DirecTV.​

A secluded rural enclave, Powell’s Fort Valley where the ranch is located has sometimes been called the “Small Valley within the Valley.” This pastoral area is a favorite for riding enthusiasts and is a perfect getaway from the hustle and bustle of daily life.​
