“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”

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.

“You can ride or Hike!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 2, 2012

The ride along the Skyline Drive is very enjoyable with many places that overlook the valley and you can picnic are just walk.
