Shenandoah Summit Sampler

  • 20 Apr 2024
  • 8:00 AM - 3:00 PM
  • Luray, VA


Registration is closed

6.25 miles, Rating of 5, Suitable for intermediate hikers looking for a challenge and advanced hikers.  The "Yellowstone of the East" will not disappoint on this collection of 3 summit hikes.


Spend a day hiking in the beautiful Shenandoah National Park. We begin at Marys Rock.  Many legends surround the name of this hike, but there's no denying the westward views that it provides of Shenandoah Valley and Massanutten Mountain. We'll hike 2.9 miles on the Meadow Spring Trail and Appalachian Trail. A moderate trail with 830-foot of elevation gain.

Next, we'll travel about 13 miles to Hawksbill Gap parking lot. From here we'll hike to Shenandoah's highest summit at 4,051 feet along the Lower Hawksbill Trail. The viewing platform offers a 360° panoramic view of the Shenandoah Valley, Blue Ridge Mountains, and the Virginia Piedmont. A moderate trail with 690-foot of elevation gain. 

Lastly, we'll travel to Skyland Area for a quick break. Not far is the access point for Stony Man Trail. This is an easier trail that leads to an outstanding view of Shenandoah Valley and Massanutten Mountain and beyond. We'll hike 1.7 miles along the Appalachian Trail with 690-foot of elevation gain. 

As with all WWO hikes, there will be a leader and a sweep, and no one will be left behind.

After you complete your registration, you will receive a confirmation email with additional event details and start location.

There is limited space, so please register early. Although this hike is FREE for Premium Members, you do need to register.
