A few friends and I are hiking/camping in Shenandoah in about two weeks. If anyone is interested in tagging along and/or will already be in the park, the more the merrier. Unfortunately, we've already got a full car so you'll need your own transportation, but you're welcome to share in the endless verbal abuse that we're bound to throw at one another.

As it stands, we probably won't do any climbing due to a supposed lack of good routes within the park. However, I'm inclined to bring gear any way, so who knows what will come of it.

What part of the park are you going to be hiking? I live pretty close to the Shenandoah.

We'll probably start somewhere near Old Rag so as to be proximal to a good climbing destination. Where we'll go from there, I don't know. Conversely, we may start a day out from Old Rag and plan on arriving there for a few climbs on Monday.

Thanks for the heads up. I think I'm going to hit up Raven Rocks this weekend though.

Old Rag is definitely a great hike, a good view, and worthy of a few climbing days. White Oak Canyon is also gorgeous. You really can't go wrong hiking in Shenandoah Ntl. Park, especially in the fall and winter. If you go in the summer, plan to hike to a waterfall so you can enjoy the pools to swim in. Not to knock my backyard but none of the views rival that grandiose landscape that you get out west. The beauty is truly hidden within the vegetated hobbit-esque knolls of the Appalachian forests. Have fun.
