My husband & I took the shorter route (Fox Hollow) of the Dickey Ridge Trail. We went in the morning so it was very quiet, relaxing and enjoyable- not steep or hard to do. We didn't see any bears!

We actually did the Skyline Drive through the park. Do NOT miss it! Watch for the numerous places where the Appalachian Trail crosses the drive. Iconic americana.

This is an interesting hike that starts across the Parkway from the Dickey Ridge Visitor Center. It can be combined with the Fox Hollow and Snead Farm trails to add a graveyard and a homestead to the hike for those interested in local culture.

Dickey Ridge Trail is another good trail to hike when in the Shenandoah National Park. Put on you hiking shoes and enjoy the fall fauna.

There is a nice 3 mile loop starting on the Dicky Ridge trail that is an easy start to the day and a very pretty walk through the woods. A map at the car park clearly shows the route.

I'm sorry but we drove so I can't tell you. If you have a smart phone I would just try plugging it in there. Park Rangers can direct you.
