The only time ever hiked this section in one piece was eleven yeas ago but I come up here several times per year. I have hiked the AT which parallels Skyline Drive and played along the way. There are so many beautiful side trails to big views and to waterfalls.

We drove this section in the winter (dec/jan). It was beautiful and we were thankful it was open. Some days it is closed due to weather.
