This Shenandoah National Park hike is near Old Rag Mountain, but less well known. Depending on the number of hikers, carpooling may be necessary. Total hike length is 8.5 miles with an elevation gain of 2,210 ft. Not for younger children, but moderately experienced hikers should be fine. Will pass small waterfalls and pools, so a quick refreshing dip is possible coming down from the Bear Church Rock overlook. Pack a lunch and plenty of water (2-3 liters). The drive to the trail head is ~2 hours from Richmond. Leave from Gaskins Road parking lot (Gaskins and Mayland Drive). More info about trail HERE.
