4 Essential Stops in SHENANDOAH NATIONAL PARK [4K]
in this video, I talk about my 4 favorite things to do in Shenandoah National Park, VA. This beautiful national park lies in the Blue Ridge Mountains in Virginia, about 75 miles west of Washington DC. The park is over a hundred miles long and as you could imagine, there are countless activities to do within this park.
This video was taken in the end of April, so you can really see which trees have leaves and which do not. As we hiked or drove down from Skyline drive, even just 900 feet would be enough to completely transform.
SHENANDOAH NATIONAL PARK
One of the few national parks on the east coast
Established in 1935
Home to the famous SKYLINE DRIVE which is 105 miles long
Virginial mountains, part of the Blue Ridge Mountains (part of the Appalachian mountain range), just 75 mi outside of Washington DC,
Land acquired through eminent domain. There is a long story there including claims of embellished claims local inbreeding
Parts of the park was used to train troops for WW2
5 campgrounds (some are first come first serve, and others allow reservations when in season)
9 major waterfalls to hike in and see – tallest one is 91 ft, but there are countless smaller ones along every creek
ROSE RIVER FALLS TRAIL / DARK HOLLOW FALLS:
Start at mile 49.4
Moderate difficulty, 4 mi, 910 ft elevation change
Hike clockwise to go down the rocky side (relatively easy) and then up the gradual fire road
You will also see Dark Hollow falls at the bottom and you can optionally add a quarter mile to hike up that waterfall
Cemetery on the way back
105 miles long, spanning the entire park
More than 75 overlook
Countless overlooks and pull offs to get the best view on the east or west side.
I recommend stopping at these all day to see amazing views, at sunrise, at sunset, and pull over to take a look at the stars at night
HAWKSBILL SUMMIT – start on Skyline drive pull off mile 45.5
1.7 mi round trip – which means you go up 520 ft
Very rapid ascent
Birds nest 2 – you can see Old Rag Mountain on your right
OLD RAG MOUNTAIN
You need to drive out of the park to get here
This does still require the park entrance fee, so be sure to stop and pay, or show them your pass
7.5 hrs (we did it in 6)
2380 ft elevation gain
Very strenuous – includes rock scrambling
9.2 mile circuit
Birds Nest 1 resides here – and you can see Hawksbill from the summit

HIKING TO DARK HOLLOW FALLS IN SHENANDOAH NATIONAL PARK, VIRGINIA
I'm taking a break from baseball videos today to vlog about our hiking trip to Dark Hollow Falls.
I thought about hitting some baseballs off of the mountain tops, but didn't want to litter in a National Park, since I wouldn't have been able to retrieve the baseballs.
Thanks for watching!

Hiking the River Trail at Great Falls Park, Virginia
The River Trail is a 1.5 mile (one way) trail that parallels the Potomac River, along the cliff tops of the Mather Gorge, just down river from Great Falls. The trail is located in Great Falls Park, in Fairfax County, Virginia.
Park literature rates the trail as moderate-difficult, though personally I did not find the trail difficult at all. It is a short trail with very little elevation change. I suspect the trail rating is due to the very rocky conditions. Also, in some sections the trail passes just along the edge of some very high cliffs. One wrong step could mean almost certain death LOL!
The River Trail offers spectacular views of the Potomac River and Mather Gorge. Thanks for watching! Be sure to LIKE, COMMENT, and SUBSCRIBE!

Hike to Doyles River Falls in Shenandoah National Park, VA
Crisp early morning hike in Shenandoah National Park. This sunny early November hike starts just off of Skyline Dry at mile 81.1, near Big Run Overlook. The hike starts by winding its way through the forest as we descend off the crest of the ridge. If you listen closely there is a woodpecker that can be heard in the first few minutes of the video. After a few minutes we encounter a spring and then soon after a small creek. The creek soon gets much larger as it rapidly makes it's way down the side of the mountain. Eventually we encounter the real purpose of this trip. The impressive Doyles River Falls! These falls consist of two separate water falls. The first is 28 feet high and the latter 63 feet. To make the round trip hike to the falls and back is about 3.2 miles with just over a 1000 feet of elevation to climb to get back to the parking area.
The Cascades, Barneys Wall, Butt Mountain, Jefferson National Forest, VA
This beautiful hike in Jefferson National Forest near Pearisburg, Virginia travels deep into Little Stony Creek Gorge to The Cascades, one of the best waterfalls I've seen in the Southeast. I took the Lower Trail which sticks beside the creek for 2 miles, passing by multiple large cascades and a small slot gorge. Beyond The Cascades I hiked further to the little known Upper Cascades, then took the steep Conservancy Trail up to Barneys Wall. Although the views aren't all-encompassing, Barneys Wall is a vertical cliff nearly 400-ft tall that overlooks the gorge.
From there I continued on the trail and a forest road where hardly a hiker ventures to the old fire tower on Butt Mountain. On the southwest side of the mountain is a cliff overlooking Pearisburg and the New River Valley. I made a fateful decision to find Lookoff Rock on the south side of Butt Mountain, which turned out to be a bushwhack through waist-high thorns with plenty of bear scat and spiders along the way. At the peak according to my GPS there were no views, so I turned around and headed back to the fire tower. Overall it was a great hike excluding the bushwhack excursion, I hope you enjoy the video!
Hike to Jones Run and Doyles River Falls, Shenandoah National Park, VA
We hiked the loop down Jones Run and up the Doyles River trails, passing waterfalls and cascades along the way. Shenandoah National Park, VA. Numerous wildflowers blooming, including Dutchman's Britches (Dicentra cucullaria). Shot 4/27/14.
Shenandoah Mountains Little Devil's Steps
Because of the steep grade the first two miles of the Little Devils Stairs hike in the Shenandoah National Park can be tough if the day is warm. The best time to do this hike is the early spring when water levels are at a peak, making the numerous waterfalls along Keiser Run that much nicer. At one point the trail even passes through a small set of falls. Enjoy spectacular views of either side of the gorge as the Little Devis Stairs trail gets closer to the top of the gorge.
The second half of the hike follows the Keyser Run Fire Road back down past the Bolen Cemetery. This is a pleasant walk through some old growth. If you would like to make this hike longer add the 3 sections of the Piney Branch hike to make the circuit a little over 9.0 miles.
