Along the Shenandoah near Riverton

river view
Rock cliffs can be seen across the Shenandoah River from the Front Royal Golf Club. There is a boat landing and a new public trail, the William E. Carson Trail.
The area along the river is clearly flood plain. Note the debris around the bench, washed up into bushes during a recent flood. This was a fairly minor flood by Shenandoah standards. In 1996, a flood took out the clubhouse at the golf course.
