Photograph Wildflowers and Bald Eagles along the Shenandoah River

Rate this Adventure

Added by Stephen Catalano

Bring your camera along the scenic walking path next to the Shenandoah River, home to abundant wildflowers and plenty of bald eagles.

The Shenandoah University River campus has a great winding walking path along the Shenandoah River. Theres plenty of room to park and even a large picnic area for having a bite to eat after your adventure. During the spring and summer months, tons of wildflowers line the trails, so bring along a camera or just take it all in.

Don't make the mistake of forgetting to bring a telephoto lens! There are great opportunities to get up-close photos of bald eagles that nest in the area.
