The Mission of the ‘Tween Rivers Trail is to collectively market and promote the Rappahannock-Rapidan agri-tourism sites and activities; to create a coordinated tourism experience for the traveling public and brand the region as an agri-tourism destination.
The Rappahannock-Rapidan region is defined by the Rappahannock and Rapidan rivers and is comprised of Culpeper, Orange, Madison, Fauquier and Rappahannock counties. Situated within easy driving distance of Northern Virginia/Washington DC, and other points north and south, and located in the scenic foothills adjoining the Shenandoah National Park to the west, the Rappahannock-Rapidan region is an attractive weekend get-away and increasingly, extended-stay vacation destination for nearby and distant travelers alike.
In October of 2013, the Rappahannock-Rapidan Regional Commission (RRRC) was awarded funds from the Virginia Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services Agricultural and Forestry Industries Development Planning Grant to implement multiple strategies designed to support, expand and sustain agricultural and forestry based businesses in the region. RRRC is working with each of the five county tourism departments utilizing the grant funds to implement specific strategies designed to raise awareness of these industries, increase the procurement of regionally produced ag and forestry products and sustain the future of agriculture and forestry in the region.
