Rockfish Gap Entrance, Shenandoah National Park, VA – April 2014

Established in 1935, Shenandoah National Park is known for its spectacular vistas from the 105-mile long Skyline Drive as well as countless waterfalls and hiking trails. The park is especially popular in the fall, when visitors come to enjoy the changing foliage. Our early spring trip allowed for an uncrowded visit, driving from south to north with an overnight stay at Skyland Resort.
For some moderate hiking right off the Drive, we suggest:
-Dark Hollow Falls: This was the most crowded of the trails we did. It’s the shortest hike to any waterfall in the park (1.7 mi r/t to the base of the falls)
-Hawksbill: Spectacular views of the Shenandoah Valley from the highest peak in the park (2 mi r/t)
-Stony Man: This 1.6 mi loop to the park’s second highest peak offers great views and includes a section of the Appalachian Trail.
