Foursquare Tips

  • Drive skyline drive at sunset for your best chance to catch wildlife. Just be careful, they can be really hard to see.
  • Stop in one of the gift shops and get the audio tour of the park. It's well worth the $10 for the CD. Also, be prepared to give it a full day. If you plan on hiking, be smart, wear sturdy.
  • Hogback Overlook has the best view of the valley on the northern third of Skyline!
  • The deer are "friendly" and can get pretty close.
  • $15 to enter the park
  • The Park was established in 1935 and built by the CCC. Close to the major populations areas on the East Coast, it gets millions of visitors. Enjoy it in many ways.
  • whiteoak canyon falls is beautiful! & swimming is permitted in all of the streams! love it here!!
  • Not much cell reception here, so check in when you arrive! Beautiful park, great views, a hiking trail for everyone! :)
  • Absolutely beautiful. You're sure to see wildlife. Have your cameras ready. And don't forget to stop at Big Meadows.
  • You have to pay a fee to get in unless you're like me & have a lifetime free pass for being a disabled veteran. Must visit Big Meadows when you are here because there's always lots of deer.
  • The eight-mile hike to Old Rag Mountain is the toughest route in the park (and also one of the most popular). If thats a bit too ambitious, try hiking to and around one of the parks many waterfalls.
  • It's kind of pretty here
  • Beautiful Views, Alot of wildlife, Deer, Black Bear, Snakes, If you like hiking, you'll see Waterfalls, and you can play in them. But to see them some of the trails aren't easy to walk but worth it
  • When the Rangers warn you its foggy out, beware it might be pea soup
  • Even in the it's beautiful. Encountered deer at the entrance welcoming us.
  • Get in some good hiking and camping!!
  • Take a hike on as many of the waterfall trails as possible. It's so pretty, plus the last time I went we were about 100 feet from a very large bear!
  • Dickey Ridge Trail starts outside the park, so it's easy access. First two miles are fairly flat, so it's good for beginners but climbs in elevation after that.
  • Trails, scenic views, roads, hiking
  • Don't forget to stop at the overlooks on skyline drive and take time to enjoy the view.
