Kids in Parks

Shenandoah National Park has partnered with Kids in Parks to create three TRACK Trails. Each trail includes self-guided brochures and signs, and completing each trail’s activity guide supports the Shenandoah Junior Ranger Program. In addition to earning prizes by mail, kids can track their adventures in an online nature journal, logging how many trails they’ve visited and how many miles they’ve hiked.
