Shenandoah NP/Valley in Late March
« on: January 26, 2017, 12:20:40 PM »

I'll be heading to Shenandoah NP/Valley area in late March (spring break). I'm looking for recommendations in hikes, preferably with good waterfalls/streams. Thinking either a series of smaller hikes or one longer one. We are staying in Gordonsville, and plan on hiking one or two days. I know we are also planning a day in Fredericksburg to visit a friend (and I plan on visiting the civil war cemetery). This is the second time I'll have been to the area, but really the first to have time to hike and enjoy the park.

Dark Hollow Falls trail is one of the more popular ones in the park. It's not that long, but pretty steep. The White Oak Canyon and Cedar Run Loop is about 8 miles with several waterfalls. You can find more details on this page https://loadedlandscapes.com/shenandoah-national-park/

After looking at the schedule, I'll probably only have one day in the park, so thinking Dark Hollow and a couple of other shorter hikes might be it. Not sure we would have the time for 8 miles and still do some of the things we want to do. Thanks for the link!

A few shorter hikes that you might want to consider: Stony Man and Upper Hawksbill. You won't find waterfalls on these trails, but they lead to two of the highest points in the park with great views. The trailheads are relatively close to the trailhead for Dark Hollow Falls so it would be pretty convenient for you.
