Virginia:Sky Meadows State Park Gap Run Loop

va

Star Star Star Star Star

Distance: 2.1 miles


A shorter 2 mile loop in Sky Meadows State Park.

From the Visitors Center head up the trail and take a left at the gate. At the first set of steps, cross over the fence and go up into the meadow following the wide trail. You could also take a right at this point and go on the Piedmont Overlook Trail which will join back up at the North Ridge Trail. When you reach the North Ridge Trail, follow the North Ridge Trail until you meet the Gap Run Trail. Take a left on Gap Run Trail and hike down through the campsite area until you meet the lower end of South Ridge Trail and then take a left and head back towards the Visitors Center. This route took us about 2 hours. We took our time and stopped for many photos. Enjoy!
