Quick and easy hike. There are signs for a particular bear in the area that is aggressive towards dogs. I didn’t see it, but I did see about a dozen deer up at the Dickey Ridge Visitor Center where I parked!

Leisurely stroll through wooded area. We went on a foggy day with no one around. It made the cemetery a little spookier. Wouldn't redo the trail as it is forgettable.

only mile marker 0 to 5 was open on skyline drive today and this was one of the trails within that area. nothing too fancy but an enjoyable 45 min walk.

Not much to see, not even off the Eastern side. Just a few glimpses through the trees. I’d skip next time.

Nice trail, muddy in areas, lots of shade but still muggy on a hot day. Trail goes by the Fox family cemetery

Perfect for a trail run- short, nice loop with mostly smooth path, only a few rocky parts. Beginning clockwise to the left gives you a mostly downhill run, although the end is on an uphill. I tried the route counter-clockwise; the uphill in that direction was too much for me to run, so I walked that part. Passed by three families- popular trail for little kids.

Short, downhill and uphill, the uphill will get you if you’re not in shape

Have to focus on where you’re walking as you can trip! Took us 30 minutes to do, pretty leisurely :).

first "real" hike for my almost 4 year old. make sure to grab a kids' map at the trailhead; my daughter enjoyed following along with the landmarks. we saw several chipmunks and squirrels and a box turtle, plus heard a lot of birds. incline is just enough to get some work in but not tiring

A great family trail. Not much by way of views but you see the family cemetery and the walk has just enough incline to be interesting but not so much to be daunting. Families with dogs make this loop all the time.

The walk through the woods was peaceful. The kids enjoyed looking for the various items that the visitor center provided. All in all, decent trail and nice start to Shenandoah.

A short and easy loop past some historical ruins, and a family's cemetery. Interpretive brochures are available at the Dickey Ridge Visitor Center, MP 4.6 on Skyline Drive. Blue blazes mark the trail. Restroom are available at the Visitor Center.

Decent trail for a quick family hike at the north end of the park. Very doable for 4-year-old legs. Forested the whole way, so it doesn't offer views of the valley, but the forest itself is scenic and pleasant.

Quick loop that will kick your glutes in gear with the incline that "doesn't stop!" Kidding! Not bad, just some uphill that keeps you working to close the loop!
