Rolling Meadows is very easy to walk (definitely more of a walk then a hike) and is relatively flat for the most part. Excellent views of the surrounding countryside although nothing dramatic like the overlooks in Shenandoah National Park. Trails are very well maintained and wide which is nice when I bring my dog. Several creek crossings as well. Hiked several times but can't beat this one a cool fall day.

Combined Rolling Meadows with Washington's Ridge for a nice hike on a hot day. Rolling Meadows isn't much more than a walk but the two stream crossings are nice along with the views. Washington's Ridge adds a little challenge and some scenery.

More of a walk than a hike. Fields are nice but don't provide much excitement

This trail was much nicer than I expected. On a cold January day it was still scenic, so I MUST return this summer. I still need to do the rest of the trails in the park so if I have time, this one is worth repeating. There is some elevation gain, but not all at once, so you will hardly notice.

One of the most beautiful hikes I have ever been on. Beautiful views no matter where you are in the park!
