This trail leads up to two lookout points in Shenandoah National Park and is definitely worth a visit. The trail is a loop that meets up with the Appalachian Trail about 0.6 miles in. Follow the AT (white blazes), to the lookout points. Once you notice blue blazes again, continue following them to complete the loop.
Once you reach the summit, you'll notice the trail heading back downhill in both directions. You should be able to find a small trail that leads to a rocky summit where you get amazing views of Shenandoah's surrounding mountains and valleys below.
Going up the right-hand side of the loop first is probably more strenuous than going up the left side because it's uphill for 0.6 miles to the AT.
Dogs are not allowed on this trail.
