This out and back hike (3.4 miles, 1000' ascent) in the North District of Shenandoah National Park follows the Appalachian Trail. Defined by a moderate ascent in young hardwood forest, this land was once grazing land and old apple orchard. Look for the Jenkins Gap parking area on Skyline Drive, at mile marker 12.4. Be prepared to pay the Shenandoah National Park entrance fee. The yellow highlight is used to illustrate the recommended route. Look for the trailhead for Jenkins Gap Trail to the left of the parking lot and proceed 150 yards to the Appalachian Trail (AT). Turn left to head southbound on the AT. Continue on the AT until it crosses Skyline Drive at mile marker 14.1. Retrace your steps to return to parking. Through volunteer efforts, education and advocacy, the Potomac Appalachian Trail Club (PATC) maintains and protects a section of the Appalachian Trail, in addition to the Tuscarora and other nearby trails and trail lands, in the Mid-Atlantic region for the enjoyment of present and future hikers.
