But you have to earn it! Great hikes, walks, rides,
floats and more to your favorite frozen stuff.

BY ERIC J. WALLACE
THERE ARE FEW COMBINATIONS as satisfying as an

afternoon of outdoor summer adventure capped by a
tasty treat of frozen stuff. Here, we travel the region
topping six great outside activities with some of the
best local handmade cold desserts the Blue Ridge
has to offer.

FRONT ROYAL
THE SHOP - C & C Frozen Treats. Situated at the

SHENANDOAH RIVER'S
SOUTH FORK
A six-mile float from Simpson's
Landing to Front Royal puts
you in good position for a visit
to C & C Frozen Treats.

heart of historic Main Street, this shop is as fun and
local-roots as it gets. Husband and wife owners Willie
and Nina Huck support more town charities and causes
than can be listed and strive to create a welcoming
vibe with a heavy dose of quirk. (540) 450-7939.
THE PRODUCT - Handmade from local milk,
cream and fruit. Though they offer traditional varieties, the Hucks specialize in bizarre and unexpected
tastes. Order a vanilla cone and they'll smilingly entreat you to taste three less conventional flavors
before handing over your treat. (Sugar and dairy
free options are available too.)
KILLER FLAVORS - Take a walk on the wild
side with oddities like Dill Pickle, Jalapeno,
Hibiscus, Cucumber Ginger, and more. Less
adventurous but interested gastronomists
can check out the Rum Café (a coffee/
Caribbean rum mix), Pink Grapefruit,
or kid-inspired Bubble Gum.

HOW TO EARN IT - Canoe the Shenandoah River's
South Fork from Simpson's Landing to Front Royal.
This six-mile float will take about half a day and carry
you through a shallow stretch of isolated river with
lots of rock cover, farmland, riffles and some enjoyable
Class II rapids. Put in at the Virginia Department of
Game and Inland Fisheries ramp off of state Route
623. Takeout just outside of Front Royal at the ramp
in Eastham Park.
RENTALS & SHUTTLE SERVICE - Front Royal
Canoe. Trips from $50, including rental & shuttle.

STAUNTON
THE SHOP - The Split Banana. For locals, this

is the go-to spot for cold sweet treats in historic
downtown Staunton. Friendly personnel,
vaulted ceilings, booth seating
and a retro 1950s vibe demand
an extended hangout.
thesplitbanana.com
THE PRODUCT - Gourmet Italian-style ice cream,
i.e. gelato, made daily by
hand. Implementing as many
fresh and locally sourced ingredients as possible, TSB's
gelato is smooth and creamy
