Springtime Activities in Pearisburg, VA

Spring has sprung, and nature is calling, so if you’re feeling the urge to get outdoors for some time away from the day-to-day chaos, then Pearisburg, Virginia is your solution. Inn at Riverbend is only moments away from a number of outdoor adventures, so reserve your room now, and enjoy one or more of these activities:


Hiking: It’s the classic way to explore the Great Outdoors, and there is no better place and time to hike than springtime in Virginia. Grab your boots, a camera, a snack, and a bottle of water, and head out into the picturesque wooded trails in and around Pearisburg. Whether you’re trekking along the Appalachian Trails towards Kelly Knob, or you’re relishing the roar of Lower Cascade Falls, you’ll find yourself enjoying this natural peace away from the “real world.”

Fishing: Calling anglers of all experience levels! Our glistening New River is the perfect location for you kick back and settle in for a day of fishing. The river waters offer a huge variety of fish—smallmouth bass, flathead catfish, channel catfish, rock bass, and more. Claim your fishing spot on the banks of the river, or take a canoe out and let the drifting current carry you to your catch.

Geocaching: If you enjoyed the idea of treasure hunting as a kid, then you just might get a kick out of this GPS-based version for the modern age. Geocaching uses a series of latitude and longitude points to locate a hidden cache, which contains everything from travel logs to small trinkets. All you need is an account on Geocaching.com, a GPS (or GPS phone app), a bit of patience, and a fondness for adventure and discovery. (Once you’ve signed up for your geocaching account, click here to see a list of Pearisburg, VA caches waiting to be found!)

These are only a few of the outdoor activities that you can enjoy as the beauty of spring continues to bloom.

We look forward to seeing you soon!
