Please consult the 2020 edition of the Tuscarora Trail guides for the most up to date information on the trail.

Virginia Tuscarora Trail Detour

 

The Tuscarora Trail section just west of Massanutten Mountain is closed due to loss of landowner permission.  Please respect the landowner's decision.  This is the Doll Ridge section from Three Top Mountain to Riverview Drive.  To detour this section, please follow the following directions.  This detour adds about 7 miles to the trail.  We are working on a shorter reroute.  Please contact the Tuscarora Trail Committee Chair at tuscaroratrail@patc.net with any questions.  
 

The entire reroute is not blazed blue; you will need to follow the directions to stay on the route.

 

Southbound:

 

In the North Shenandoah Valley when on Swartz Road, do not turn left onto Harrisville Road. Instead, go straight (south) on Swartz Rd. for 4.6 miles to Woodstock, VA (the last 0.2 miles are named Lee Rd within the Woodstock city limits).  Turn left (east) on North St. and proceed 0.2 miles to US Hwy 11.  Turn left (north) on US Hwy 11 and proceed 0.2 miles to Mill Rd.  Turn right (east) on Mill Rd. and proceed 1.3 miles to Woodstock Tower Road.  Turn left (east) and proceed 2.8 miles
to the Massanutten Trail (blazed orange) crossing at the ridgeline.  Turn left (northeast) onto the Massanutten Trail. Go north 4.9 miles on the Massanutten Trail to rejoin the Tuscarora at the Massanutten Trail/Tuscarora Trail intersection.

 

Northbound:

 

On Three Top Mountain, at the intersection of the Massanutten Trail and Tuscarora Trail, do not turn right onto the Tuscarora.  Instead, go straight (south) on the Massanutten Trail (blazed orange) for 4.9 miles to the Woodstock Tower Rd crossing.  Turn right (west) on Woodstock Tower Road and proceed 2.8 miles to Mill Road (be sure not to turn left onto Stagecoach Road at a T intersection). Turn right (west) on Mill Road and proceed 1.3 miles to US Hwy 11.  Turn left (south) on US Hwy 11 and proceed 0.2 miles to North Street.
