we plan a trip to VA on the first week of April (school spring break)
how are conditions on Skyline Drive and around the park for hiking?
we have young kids (7,5) and looking for few easy trails, nothing too complicated
we'll start at the North of Shenandoah NP, go through Skyline drive and from Rockfish Gap area do some of Blue Ridge parkway.
same question here: how are the roads, hiking trails and if anyone can recommend nice trails for kids (water falls are always a hit)
how is the lodging around this area at this time of the year? is it all open or not yet?
I understand the visitor centers are still closed at this time of the year, any restroom\food tips?
is there anything really amazing\must see in a reasonable distance beyond Lynchburg?
we did visit the Great Smokey mountains few years back
