Had an awesome time visiting this visitor center. It is a great starting point for a walk to Fox Hollow and the Snead barn. There are great views from the back lawn. Staff are very friendly and helpful. :)

If you begin your trip at the beginning of the Skyline Drive in Front Royal, Va, then this is a good place to start. There is a small exhibit, and gift shop. Speak to the rangers and they will steer you in the right direction.
