Women's Wellness program begins April 8 at Virginia "underground" state park"

This Spring Virginia State Parks' will offer its fifth Women's Wellness Weekend, this time at Natural Tunnel State Park Park in Duffield, Virginia. The weekend will provide educational and recreational opportunities that empower and enlighten women to sustain a healthy lifestyle.

This type of weekend is an excellent "getaway" for women of all ages where they can treat themselves to a weekend of pampering and fun activities. Natural Tunnel is a picturesque setting where you can unwind and regain balance in your life. For the entire weekend, a wide variety of workshops, programs and outdoor activities will be offered. You may want to experience the underground world of caves and caverns. View first hand the unique formations and historical remains found in the park caves. You'll see evidence of earlier cave explorers and inhabitants. A trained guide provides participants hard hats, knee pads, lights, gloves and instruction. This tour involves more effort and ability due to the crawls and small passages found within the cave.

The weekend begins on Friday, April 8 with registration starting at 3 p.m. and ends the afternoon of Sunday, April 10. For those who decided to arrive Thursday evening, a trip to Wilderness Road State Park and Southwest Virginia Museum State Park is planned for Friday.

The Women's Wellness Weekends are affordable. Registration fees include all sessions as well as meals. Lodging is separate. Natural Tunnel has recently opened 10 new cabins ranging from two-bedroom cabins to a six-bedroom lodge. Lodging is also available at the park's Cove Ridge Conference Center as well in the park's two campgrounds.

More information and prices on the Virginia State Park's Women's Wellness Weekend or for general park is available at the park website. Overnight reservations can also be made by calling 1-800-933-PARK (7275).
