I like hiking to Piedmont Overlook via Gap Run Trail. Plan to explore other trails at Sky Meadow soon.

Gap Run is an ok trail, and you can make it a bigger loop by adding the north ridge (a little more difficult) and then back on south ridge to Boston Mill Rd. However, you get better views by simply doing the Piedmont Overlook trail.

We completed the trail near the end of our loop with the Piedmont Overlook and North Ridge Trails. We enjoyed the sounds of the flowing stream as we descended through the woods. However, my favorite portion of the trail was when it emerged to striking rolling meadow views framed by wonderful summer cloud formations and lots of beautiful wildflowers.

Took this as an alternative route to Piedmont Overlook. It offered nice shade on a 92 degree day, but it lacked the views you get on the approach up the Piedmont loop trail. Still a nice walk in the woods, though.

Other than being listed in the wrong park, this is a nice walk.

This trail is in Sky Meadows State Park, not Shenandoah National Park. It starts behind the visitor center on 710. Take it to the Snowden Loop Trail.
