We visited during Labor Day weekend 2012 and drove the portion starting in Luray and up to Skyland Resort. We hiked to Dark Hollow Falls and it was a bit challenging, but we took our time and enjoyed the cool water when we reached the bottom. Our group included my two boys who were 9 and 12 years and did the hike with ease. We actually had to tell my 9 year old to slow down because he was blazing up the trail! We drove up in the morning and I am glad that we stopped and took pictures at all the overlooks on the way up, because by the afternoon a fog had set in and you could not see anything! Driving back down was a bit scary because the road is very winding and the fog was dense and patchy. However, I just drove slowly and we all avoided having panic attacks. I definitely plan to go back and hope that we will see some wildlife on our next trip.
