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).

Beautiful hike through the trees. Trail is steep in some parts. Recommend taking the trail to the left on the way down and hike up the fire road on the way back.

Beautiful hike on a well maintained trail.

This was a strenuous, challenging trail which was exactly what I was looking for. It was at a high elevation and there were a ton of rock scrambles. Having said that I would say it’s definitely not for children and dogs are not allowed. The scenery was magnificent and the parking area was close by. Two thumbs up, highly recommended.

beautiful trail with lots of rock scrambling

Steeper than I expected on the way back up. Ruins were great to explore

Views were mediocre and the short trail to the top was really crowded

Great fall hike for the wife and I. Nice beams of sunlight peaking through this morning. Came down the mountain a lot quicker than expected.

It was very foggy when we went,m so there was not much of a view at the top, but through the woods was gorgeous.

Well worth going to the bottom of the falls. Going back up does suck. Def recommend taking the fire road back up. Would like to see the falls in the spring.

Fantastic downhills walk to the falls. There is a good amount of spring run off and they are beautiful in the fall. It's a hike coming back, gives a good heart pumping.
