As part of a new series, our Oh, Ranger! team has put together a list of our favorite national park activities. Each month, we'll share a few of our most-loved adventures with you. In return, we hope YOU will do the same!

Here is our first round of Oh, Ranger! Insider Tips. We hope you enjoy them -- and that they inspire you to get outdoors and experience our parks!

Shenandoah National Park, Virginia
Hike a section of the Appalachian Trail that runs through Shenandoah and stay in one of the Potomoc Appalachian Trail Club (PATC) trailside huts.

Bryce is famous for its dark night skies. Join Bryce Canyon's "Dark Rangers" for night tours including stargazing sessions, nocturnal animal viewing programs, and eerie hikes among the hoodoos.
