Navigate switchbacks, boulder scrambles, and rock mazes on this 8.6-mile loop that ascends Old Rag Mountain, one of Shenandoah's most famous peaks.

Weaving around car-size boulders to the summit of 3,268-foot Old Rag Mountain is the quintessential Shenandoah thrill–and its airy precipice is also the great place to score 360-degree views. Get a map, elevation profile, and turn-by-turn directions of this dayhike at backpacker.com/hikes/53633.
