Park on Skyline Drive where the A.T. crosses the road. 38.35742, -78.54542

By Trail Contributors: Christine and Adam Anderson

While this hike doesn’t offer any grand views or beautiful streams, it does offer solitude and great opportunities to spot wildlife.  In spring, this area is lush with wildflowers.  It’s also a great choice for a snowy-day hike when Skyline Drive is closed.  You can park outside the Swift Run Gap entry station, and walk 100 yards to the trailhead.
