“A parallel trail to the Skyline Drive along Dickey Ridge in northern Shenandoah National Park.”— Luke AT
From there, the trail descends to Low Gap before ascending gradually to Lands Run Gap and then continuing steeply up Carson Mountain to its southern terminus at the Appalachian Trail AT, just north of Compton Gap.
Along the way, runners will enjoy the rolling trail, as most grades are somewhat moderate. Beautiful Appalachian scenery flanks both sides of this trail, and runners will be captivated by the local tree and shrub populations.
