Guided Hike in Seven Bends State Park

Join us on a guided hike of newly-opened Seven Bends State Park, less than a mile from the entrance to Muse Vineyards guided by David V. Brotman, Executive Director of the Friends of the North Fork of the Shenandoah River.

David will provide commentary on the flora fauna and edibles that are found in our bend in the river. The uniqueness of this place helps to make our terroir special. Hike will begin at 10 am and last about 2.5 hours. The hike begins and ends at out Tasting Room.

Enjoy beautiful forests, panoramic vistas of the valley and all that Mother Nature has to offer, and reward yourself afterwards at Muse Vineyards with relaxation and our award-winning wines.

Your guide will be David V. Brotman, Executive Director of the Friends of the North Fork of the Shenandoah River, with whom we are proud to partner on this program. Their mission is to is to keep the North Fork of the Shenandoah River clean, healthy, and beautiful through advocacy, community action, education and science. David has broad experience in environmental field work, business, conflict resolution, and education. Times spent in the Shenandoah Valley as a boy and young man — camping, hiking, fishing, and canoeing — are the very roots of his environmental interests, and his love of nature. David is a natural public educator, and has taught all age groups in a variety of indoor and outdoor settings. Subjects have included Chesapeake Bay ecology, Wild Edibles, and many more. In Yellowstone NP, he trained citizen scientists in field methods.

About the Hike

The hike will be about 2 hours in length, mostly in shade, and of easy to moderate difficulty. (There are some moderately steep hills.) The group will stay together for David’s descriptions of the landscape, flora and fauna, so the pace will be at a slow to moderate pace. We recommend you wear hiking shoes and bring water. We will be safe distancing among groups.
