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).

Short and sweet, great views at the top.

Rock scramble was fun, but finding the view was a little difficult. I'm not sure if I completely blanked and missed it, but the scramble alone was enough to go back again! I'll look harder for that 360 view next time :)

Great hike. The rock scramble was no joke. Harder than expected but nothing you can't conquer as a typical hiker or in a good group.

Very good hike. Mostly shaded. Rocky portion along the river valley. Saw a bear cub along the fire road return segment.

Nice trail. Little rocky after leaving the horse trail. Great views from little stony and old man stony.

It was rocky but lot of fun and hard

Awesome trail today!
