Discover the Wild Azalea Trail, a breathtaking destination for bikers and hikers. With trailheads located at the Town Hall in Woodworth and at the Valentine Lake Recreation Area, there are plenty of points where you can join the trail and customize your adventure.

The Wild Azalea Trail is a National Recreation Trail, designated by the Chief of the U.S. Forest Service for its incredible scenic values. The trail is exclusively reserved for foot or mountain bike traffic, and you'll be easily guided by the bright yellow paint blazes that mark the route.

Immerse yourself in the stunning natural beauty of the pine hills and hardwood bottoms as you traverse through managed forest areas, clearings and untouched areas. Enjoy the Castor Creek Scenic Area, a 90-acre site that features stunning large pine and hardwood trees that are left in their natural state.

After your ride, fuel up with fresh, local produce at the Alexandria Farmers Market, or enjoy a beer at Huckleberry Brewing Company, a local favorite.
