Do's and Don'ts: Hiking Old Rag Trail in Shenandoah National Park
Oct 10, 2017
Published Oct 10, 2017 at 5:33 PM | Updated at 6:04 PM EDT on Oct 10, 2017
Nestled near Madison County, Virginia, is Shenandoah's most popular -- and most difficult -- destination for hiking: Old Rag Trail.
Along the 9.1-mile trek to the mountain's 2,415-foot summit is an intense rock scramble that requires not only athleticism, but confidence.
I hiked Old Rag Trail last weekend, and learned a lot about proper techniques for hiking -- and myself.
