Outdoor Recreation

Rugged Beauty, Boundless Adventure

How will you find your Ranson to Remember? Whether you zip line, hike, or float your way to happiness, the great outdoors is the best place to get wet–and a little wild.

Abundant with neighborhood parks, walking paths, nature trails, and recreation fields, Ranson is a place to kick back–or kick a ball around with the ones you love. The Ranson Civic Center is the heartbeat of the community, offering sports fields, batting cages, and an event lineup appropriate for the whole family. 

If your quest for adventure takes you outside of town, adrenaline-fueled experiences are close at hand. Whether you want to hit the links or the trails, recreation in the Eastern Panhandle is sure to please. The C&O Canal Towpath, Harpers Ferry, and the Shenandoah River promise scenic views and endless fun. The Appalachian Trail Harpers Ferry Visitor Center, the psychological midpoint of the 2,100-mile journey from Georgia to Maine, is the perfect spot to snap a photo, take a hike, or brush up on trail history.
