What is the Tuscarora Trail?
Created in the 1960s as an alternative to the Appalachian Trail, the Tuscarora Trail runs 250 miles from Northern Virginia to Pennsylvania.
The trail departs the AT near mile 21 of Skyline Drive in Shenandoah National Park and rejoins the AT near Duncannon, Pennsylvania. Along the way, you hike long stretches along the Massanutten Range that parallels the AT to the west, stroll along dirt roads and through woodlands. It’s a terrific lesser-known trail to explore.
