Hoy Road in Fall

Hoy Road is a quiet country lane where you can take a leisurely stroll and enjoy some wonderful vistas.

The Potomac Eagle Scenic Railroad crosses the South Branch of the Potomac River

Take a trip back in history and nature on the Potomac Eagle Scenic Railroad's vintage train, which follows the South Branch of the Potomac River as it cuts through the mountains, creating The Trough, where American bald eagles nest. Excursions run weekends May through September, daily in October, and on special occasions in November/December.

Watching eagles from the Potomac Eagle's gondola car.

Guests have seen the eagles either in their nest, soaring over the mountains, or diving for fish in the river, on nearly every ride on the rail excursion.

Re-enactors fire colonial rifles at Family Frontier Day at Fort Edwards.

Among the many history events to enjoy here is Family Frontier Day at Fort Edwards, a French and Indian War era site in Capon Bridge, where re-enactors demonstrate period weapons, tools and crafts.

Canoing on the North River

Guests enjoy canoeing and kayaking on the North River, the Cacapon River, and the South Branch of the Potomac River.

Apple tree along Hoy Rd.

Apple and peach orchards provide lovely views along Hoy Rd. each spring.
