Ascent Trip Report

Having driven to Alexandria the day before to bring my daughter for the summer we decided to drive to Shenandoah to do some hiking the next day. The weather was overcast but cleared by the time we arrived to the park. Drove 66 west to Front Royal and then south on 522 to Sperryville, VA and entered the park there. Drove Skyline Dr to the trailhead. Beautiful hike through the woods to a stone patio-like area at the top. Took some photos before we headed back down. Drove south another mile or so to Big Meadows area and hiked down to Dark Hollow Falls which is well worth the time.
