Hiking in the Shenandoah National Park
Today my family took the afternoon off and went hiking in the Shenandoah National Park. One of the benefits of living in Prince William County, VA is the access to so many beautiful national, state and local parks.
The Shenandoah National Park is about a 40 minute drive from our home. The park is over 200.000 acres and has over 500 miles of hiking trails. Part of the Blue Ridge Mountain is within the park boundaries. It is best known for the Skyline Drive, a very scenic road within the park.
It was a beautiful crisp day. My wife packed a picnic. We hiked 1.2 miles on the Dickey Ridge and Fox Hollow Trails. These are select pictures.
