"On this beautiful segment of the Appalachian Trail, hikers wind up and down through a variety of terrain, visiting two states (Virginia and West Virginia) and crossing a rocky ridge to a scenic vista. The Georgia-to-Maine Appalachian Trail (AT) was conceived in the 1920s by a forester, planner, and visionary named Benton MacKaye. Raven Rocks is a 5.2-mile hike in what is referred to as “the roller-coaster section” of the AT, an up-and-down, rocky path that offers challenging hiking and leads to panoramic views of the Shenandoah Valley and Blue Ridge Mountains. The hike begins at a trailhead off of Pine Grove Road (at the intersection of VA 7) in Bluemont, Virginia. There is no sign designating the trail name, but the trailhead is obvious." Read more
