Shenandoah National Park encompasses part of the Blue Ridge Mountains in the state of Virginia. This national park is long and narrow, with the broad Shenandoah River and valley on the west side, and the rolling hills of the Virginia Piedmont on the east. Shenandoah's Blue Ridge Mountains are covered by hardwood forests that are home to tens of thousands of animals. The Skyline Drive and Appalachian Trail run the entire length of this narrow park that has more than 500 miles (800 km) of hiking trails along scenic overlooks and waterfalls of the Shenandoah River. The highest peak is Hawksbill Mountain at 4,051 feet (1,235 m).

Very challenging but worth it!

Great day hiking straight up from the Hawksbilll parking area. Definite rocky moderate. Great views up too. Will try the more gradual ascent in the fall.

Easy hike. The watering hole is great for kids and pets.

Great easy hike. Fun for the family. I saw ages on the trail today ranging from mid 60's to 5 year olds. Amazing views at the summit.

Good kick-off-the-year hike for us. Loved the waterfalls. Nice balance of flat, up, and down. Rocks can be a bit wet so needed to be careful. Loved the day.
