Sky Meadows State Park

With a combination of meadows, grazed fields, forest, scrub, and streams, Sky Meadows has a wide variety of ecological zones. The park has 9.5 miles of bridle trails, 19 miles of hiking trails, 8 miles of bike trials and Appalachian Trail access.

Sky Meadows is a year-round bird watching site. It is known for a colony of Red-headed Woodpeckers that live in an oak grove just past the contact station.

Mt. Bleak-Skye Farm is a national historic district located in Sky Meadows State Park. The district encompasses 23 contributing buildings including barns, 1 contributing site, and 3 contributing structures dating between 1780 and 1954.

Most of the year, there are monthly "astronomy nights" where amateur astronomers bring their telescopes and use them to show attendees various celestial objects. Typically, an astronomer from the Smithsonian Institution is among the leaders.

The park is located near Paris, Va off US 17, one mile (2 km) south of US 50 and seven miles (11 km) north of Interstate 66.
