Great hike. Heads up: 1.5 miles in, traveling counter clockwise on this trail, there's a nest of angry yellow jackets. Bit our party and other folks we talked to on the trail.

The Limberlost Trail is wheel chair accessible, with lots of benches for sitting and enjoying the outdoors. We were amazed at the number of chipmunks. Park in the Limberlost lot MP 43. The nearest bathroom is at the Skyland Dining Room.

Very nice and easy trail for all levels. Sadly, did not see any wildlife but it was a very pleasant walk for our whole family (ranging in ages 2-60+), followed by lunch at Skyland after. Also intersects with other trails, including White Oak.

Great hike to do with kids, especially if you have the Shenandoah NP scavenger hunt book. The kids will really enjoy finding the cool rock formations and smelling the new birch trees. We saw a mother deer and young fawn on the trail, took a ton of pictures, and generally had a nice, relaxing walk. As per other reviews, it's very level gravel - perfect for a scavenger hunt.
