Now taking reservations for Fall and Winter 2014Enjoy a guided llama hike into the Shenandoah Valley of northern Virginia. Located just 1 ½ hours west of Washington, DC, Twin Creeks Llamas offers half-day hikes into the Blue Ridge Mountains with our llamas carrying a delicious picnic lunch. I prepare a 4 course "trail gourmet" lunch prepared with fresh ingredients and local produce, when available.
Break away from that humdrum routine and stressful work schedule and come on out to the country. Enjoy the rolling mountains, quiet forests, and fresh air scented with wildflowers, all made even better in the company of our cute and friendly llamas.
Enjoy the natural beauty of the Shenandoah Valley as you hike with a llama as your companion. Our guided hikes take you through meadows and rich forests, along brooks and streams, with views of the legendary Shenandoah River.
are on vacation. But they'd love to see you here on the farm!!
Contrary to what you might think, summer is our off season. Llamas are very sensitive to heat stress in our hot and humid Virginia climate, and we do not ask them to go on long hikes during June, July and August for their health and safety. For that reason, we do not do our regular hikes in the park,
But for our summer option, we offer a 3 hour picnic hike here on our farm at Twin Creeks. My husband, Tim, and I are guides on the hike. You will meet us here at the farm at 10:00 in the morning. We spend about an hour in the barn getting acquainted with the llamas and teaching you how to halter and lead the llamas.
Then we set out on our hike. We have 1 1/4 miles of groomed trails that meander through the woods and follow the banks of our two beautiful streams, Greasy Run and Gooney Creek. The trails are flanked on both sides by wildflowers that change with the seasons.
And the llamas enjoy cooling their feet in the stream.
We offer the same "trail gourmet" lunch that we provide on our longer hikes. Besides being wonderful hiking buddies, the llamas carry everything for us.
The cost for our Twin Creeks Walk with Lunch is $60.00 per adult and $40.00 for children 12 and under.
