"Old Rag is Shenandoah National Park’s addition to the great mountains of America. The granite-topped peak is the park’s most recognizable and beloved summit. It is famed for its boulder scramble and the multiplicity of views from the rock protuberances adorning its flanks. And the Old Rag loop is a Shenandoah classic, a must-do feather in your hiking cap, but it is the most difficult hike in this entire guidebook. The rock scramble and the elevation gain have everything to do with this rating." Read more

This is definitely the most popular trail In Shenandoah National Park, so it is a good idea to arrive early in the morning to avoid the crowds and the congestion at rock scrambling sections. I like this trail for the adventure it provides and the great views. The first part of the trail is a steady incline, moderately difficult. Then it’s up and down, around and scrambling over rocks to the summit. The descent is an easier, nice walk through the woods.
