Distance: 5.6 miles


A fantastic four-season trek, this 5.5-mile hike near the Appalachian Trail roams around Hogback Mountain in Shenandoah National Park.

This dayhike in Shenandoah's northern district starts next to Skyline Drive and follows the Appalachian Trail for a brief stretch before turning off onto the Sugarloaf Trail. Along the way, you'll pass a wide variety of flora, fauna, and geographical features. At mile 3.3, tackle a moderately challenging 1-mile, 500-foot ascent of Hogback Mountain. Expansive views of Shenandoah await at the top—as does the opportunity to catch views from the top of a hang gliding launch site. Wrap up your day with a post-hike snack at a scenic overlook.
