Hiking Trail options in Luray VA

Experience the fun and exciting of the Skyline Drive in the Shenandoah National Park in Luray VA in the Shenandoah Valley near Luray Caverns. There are over 500 miles of hiking trails in Shenandoah ranging from easy to very strenuous.

To enter the Skyline Drive in Luray take US-211 approximately 7 miles to the top of the mountain. Get in the left hand lane and turn into the Skyline Drive entrance. Go up to the guard gate where you will pay, ask for trail maps and ask any questions.

Once you pass through the guards gate you have the option of either traveling NORTH towards Front Royal or SOUTH towards Elkton.

  • If you have chosen a hike between mileposts 1 – 31.5 travel NORTH on Skyline Drive.
  • If you have chosen a hike between mileposts 31.6 – 62.7 travel SOUTH on the Skyline Drive. Many of the hikes to the highest elevation in the park are on the South end; Hawksbill Summit is the highest peak in the park.
  • Old Rag and White Oak Canyon from the bottom hiking up have to be accessed from the other side of Skyline Drive, not on Skyline Drive.
