The trail travels through the rolling hills of the Shenandoah. We were blessed with seeing much wildlife: black bears, white tail deer, wild turkey, scarlet tanager and cardinals. The only draw back was the times we needed to cross the Skyline Drive, which, at times was filled with noisy motorcycles. One benefit to the trail going through the National Park is the access to visitor centers, restrooms, lodge rooms and restaurants.
