Trails & Facilities

Every boy's dream

The Blue Ridge School’s 750-acre campus is built for active boys, with almost 20 miles of trails and facilities for everything from camping and fishing to rope climbing and marksmanship. As you can see on our interactive map, our trails are built to match a variety of skill levels—beginner to challenging to advanced—for hiking and mountain biking. All along our trails, boys will have the chance to experience native flora and fauna, explore historical sites, and enjoy scenic overlooks of the Virginia foothills. Camping, paddling, climbing, mountain bikes, and fishing gear are all available for student use.
