This trail can be started even without entering the National park. The grade is easy and shady. Not a place for a wheelchair. Even the youngest or oldest can handle this trail.

The Dickey Ridge Trail is actually joined with the Fox Hollow Trail in a sort of loop. The entire loop is just a little over five miles long and, to me (over 60), a rather moderate "leg stretcher." On the Dickey Ridge end are the...More

The Fox Hollow trail was an easy walk but no particularly interesting features. We did that with the kids and everyone enjoyed. Later the adults went up the Dickie Ridge trail to the overlook. It was about a half hour walk straight uphill bit totally...More

My husband & I took the shorter route (Fox Hollow) of the Dickey Ridge Trail. We went in the morning so it was very quiet, relaxing and enjoyable- not steep or hard to do. We didn't see any bears!

We actually did the Skyline Drive through the park. Do NOT miss it! Watch for the numerous places where the Appalachian Trail crosses the drive. Iconic americana.

We took the Dickey Ridge Trail from the Visitor center and then merged onto the Snead Farm trail. This is the better way to make the loop. Dickey Ridge is a little rocky and has quite a bit of elevation change, moderately challenging. When it...More

This is an interesting hike that starts across the Parkway from the Dickey Ridge Visitor Center. It can be combined with the Fox Hollow and Snead Farm trails to add a graveyard and a homestead to the hike for those interested in local culture.

Dickey Ridge Trail is another good trail to hike when in the Shenandoah National Park. Put on you hiking shoes and enjoy the fall fauna.

I'm sorry but we drove so I can't tell you. If you have a smart phone I would just try plugging it in there. Park Rangers can direct you.
