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.

We stopped at the Dickey Ridge Visitor's Center - the view from there alone is worth the stop, but we continued to hike part of the Dickey Ridge Trail - then followed it to the Snead Farm Trail and back to the visitor's center -...More

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.
