Hike With Us
Come hike with us on our beautiful 32-acre farm situated between Short Hill and the Blue Ridge Mountain Range in Loudoun County, Virginia.
Are you looking for a peaceful experience? Look no further! Our Llamas and alpacas will help you unwind as you hike around our farm and up Short Hill Mountain. You will be able to take in the majestic views of the Blue Ridge Mountain Range. Pack a snack, a water bottle, and a blanket for the perfect day get away. Your llama or alpaca hiking companion can carry your picnic items for you. Did you know that llamas are referred to as the South American mule? They can carry up to 25% of their body weight. Their athleticism and soft padded two-toed feet can traverse the most difficult terrain without impacting muddy trails susceptible to erosion. You can have fun with our nature obstacle course as you step over the fallen trees as your talented hiking companion will also step or jump over. As you duck under the branches, your hiking companion will do the same. Or, you can stay on the trail for a leisurely hike.
We will start the experience off with you meeting your camelid hiking companion. We will teach you how to hold and walk your llama or alpaca. If you have items you need to be carried, we will fit your hiking companion with a pack.
