Field Trip Registration for 2017 VAEE Conference


(depends on selected options)

Base fee:
  • Experience the fall colors on a leisurely 1 ½ hour guided trip. Riders must be at least 4 feet tall and no more than 245 pounds. Limit 12 people.
  • It's your day to play and Front Royal Outdoors can provide the Shenandoah River adventure you need. Front Royal Outdoors offers self-guided canoe and kayak trips on the legendary South Fork of the Shenandoah River. Enjoy the beauty of the Valley while paddling north between the Shenandoah National Park and the George Washington National Forest. While floating the normally crystal clear water on this beautiful section of the South Fork of the Shenandoah River you will experience moving water with a few riffles and small waves (Class I) and a couple areas of easy rapids with moderate waves and wide clear channels (Class II).
    Trip includes a shuttle from the Center to your launch site. Trip ends at the Front Royal Outdoors Center. This is a self-guided trip of approximately 7 miles from Karo to Front Royal, and should take 2-4 hours to complete.
  • On your one-hour tour, a knowledgeable guide will escort you through the Skyline Taverns, explaining geological history while challenging your imagination. The cavern is “living” and growing, with dripping water forming new formations and adding to existing ones.
    After the tour you can enjoy the nature trail (free) and the Maze of Mirrors ($6.00) on your own.
