We'll never tire of the scenic drive or the hiking opportunities at Shenandoah National Park. The views are spectacular, hiking trails well maintained and the park staff and visitors center are the best. We spotted lots of wildlife on our short hike on Fox Hollow/Dickey Ridge Trail . . . Monarch butterflies, a Ribbon Snake, Eastern Towhees, chipmunks and a... More

Love walking on the paths throughout Shenandoah National Park. This is a nice short hike, manageable, a bit hilly.

Fox Hollow is an easy 1.2-mile circuit hike accessed from the Dickey Ridge Visitor Center near the northernmost portion of the park. The trailhead is right across Skyline Drive from the visitor center. This is a self-guided interpretive hike with brochures available at the visitor center or at the trailhead if you'd like to learn a little more about the... More

This is a great trail to try when you're not looking for the most strenuous climb in the park. It's a steady climb from the bottom to the top which gives you the elevation without the huffing and puffing. There's a short (Fox Farm) loop near the top that goes by an old cemetery, and a visitor's center at the... More

Park at the Dickey RIdge Visitors Center and walk back into the Fox family history. This was an interesting and meaningful walk as it related to my family history. Sad that folks had to give up their homes but a win for the public now and in the future.

Hiked on October 21, 2012 and the autumn colors were amazing! It is so worth it in mid-October! Backpack a lunch and plan to spend some time chilling out at the overlook rock. The view is amazing and nice breeze. Ask a park ranger where it is on the map before leaving the Dickey Ridge Visitor Center because it's not... More
