My son and I enjoyed a day hike with a National Park Ranger who gave an excellent narrative as we hiked.

“Hike a little or hike a lot”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 6, 2012

Everyone knows or has heard about the AT but what some might not have considered for those who do not have 6 months to hike it in it's entirety it is also wonder ful for shorter excursions & plenty of perfect 1 day hikes with easy access. Take to the mountains & relieve that stress & breathe that fresh mountain air while taking in some very beautiful scenery. Go enjoy!

“AT in the fall”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 4, 2012

The AT runs through the entire park. Some sections are pretty tough but plenty of places to hop on/off. The views are awesome...

“A little piece of heaven”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 1, 2012

Even if you don't like hiking the views here are amazing. Worth the trip at least once if you are in the area.

“Nice hikes”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 8, 2012

Did a couple of short (3 miles or so each) in Shenandoah NP. Both of them were, in part, on the Appalachian Trail. Went on a Monday. Had the trails virtually to ourselves. Very peaceful. Like all the national parks, a great place to visit.
