This fairly level, pleasant stroll (2.6 miles, 500' ascent) in the North District of Shenandoah National Park follows a small stream and is appropriate for all ages. After your hike, visit the Dickey Ridge Visitor Center to see a breathtaking view. Parking is available near the sign on the roadside, about 0.3 miles from the turn onto Skyline Drive. Look for the trailhead on the right, after the sign but before the entrance station. Find more information at http://www.nps.gov/shen/index.htm. The yellow highlight is used to illustrate the recommended route. From the trailhead sign, follow Dickey Ridge Trail along the stream to the concrete post, just before a sharp U-turn. Retrace steps to return to parking.
