Nash, Virginia Map

We hiked this on one of the windiest days of the year with 4 very small children & it kicked our butts! The view was worth it, and we’d definitely do it again, but this was a huge challenge for us! We parked in the Priest Wilderness parking lot on 56 & hiked in from there to the overlook. Did about 7 miles total, as we skipped going to the shelter.

Had lunch at the Priest Overlook-gorgeous views! Had the place to myself

This was my very first overnight backpacking trip and it is still one of my favorite spots in Virginia. I highly recommend parking at the crabtree meadows parking lot if you have a vehicle with 4 wheel drive. there is a little stream behind the shelter perfect for refilling your water supply. if you get the chance to snag one of the few camping spots at the overlook consider yourself lucky and wake up in time to catch the sunrise. you won't regret it!
