Trail Notes

The Blackrock Summit Trail at Shenandoah National Park in Crozet, Virginia is an easy 1.2 mile loop hike that leads out to Blackrock Summit and features stunning views of the Shenandoah mountain range.

The trail starts off along the Appalachian Trail (white blazes) to the summit, which is only about 0.5 - 0.6 miles one-way. The summit gives you an almost-360 degree view of the southern Shenandoah area and a large rock scramble to climb if you want to take in panoramic views.

Continue on the trail and take a left at the sign post just beyond the summit area to return to the parking lot. The final hike out follows the blue blaze trail (Trayfoot Mountain Trail).

Dogs are allowed if leashed and their waste must be carried out by the hiker.

Camping is allowed on this trail - there were small areas along the Appalachian Trail along this route where thru-hikers can setup camp.

This hike should be considered easy to moderate, at worst.

Before you leave...

MyHikes is an independently-owned platform aimed to make exploring public trails easier for everyone. The site has no investors and is owned and operated by one person, Dave / Admin. We share trails, hikes, and backpacking trips on the interwebs for the fun of it and put a ton of time into mapping and writing about new trails to publish each month.

It takes a lot of time 🕦, money 💰, and effort (including espresso shots ☕) to run MyHikes. We simply ask that if you find our content helpful or useful when planning your next adventure that you consider making a small donation to help keep the site running.

You can become a Supporter* (*MyHikes user account required) to unlock perks for as little as $0.83/month with a 1-time non-recurring payment 😎 Or you can simply Donate any amount without a MyHikes user account. Otherwise, telling your friends about MyHikes is the next-best thing to a donation - both quick and free 😄

Thanks for visiting MyHikes and have a great hike! ✌
