LURAY, Va. (AP) - U.S. Sen. Tim Kaine is taking a hike up to the summit of Stony Man Trail to celebrate the centennial of the National Park Service.

The Virginia Democrat will make his first stop Monday at the headquarters of Shenandoah National Park in Luray. His office says he’ll thank park staff for their work before hitting the trail.

Following his hike, Kaine will meet with park advocates and community leaders to discuss preservation and planning efforts.

For Kaine, Monday’s hike is the start of a yearlong quest. He and members of his staff plan to visit every national park in Virginia over the course of the year.
