One of the most popular hikes in Shenandoah National Park, Old Rag lives up to expectation, even when the trail is crowded. The rock scramble is my favorite part of this hike, and the views from the top of Old Rag are spectacular. I did this hike mid-week in late June and it wasn't particularly crowded, although I'm sure it's much more packed on weekends. There are some tight squeezes in between rocks so big, bulky backpacks probably aren't a good idea on this trail.
