Old Rag in Shenandoah National Park is one of the most popular place to Hike in Virginia. It is so popular, in fact, that you need to pay $8 to get in. But it is well worth your time and money. At the top, you can get a 360 panoramic view IN the sunset. Need a new desktop background picture, here’s your chance to make your own.

This is a view just below the summit: http://www.bobcantor.com/hiking/images/OldRagView.htm

This hike is moderately difficult. On the way to Summit (4 hrs), there are some rock scrambles near the top as well as a short cave. You will need your hands free so bring a backpack. We will reach the summit on time to eat and watch sunset at 7:49 pm.

Hiking down (2 hrs) is fairly easy and we will be hiking down in the dark with headlamps. The total loop is 7.2 miles/2100 ft elevation. The weather is lookig okay at this point with temperature around 40-50. Wear layers of clothing to keep yourself warm as it will get cold at night.

You Provide: Food, plenty of water, layers of clothing, appropriate shoes for hiking, headlamp if you have it, camera for those priceless moments, $8 entrance fee, and your adventurous mind.

Club Provides: Headlamp, Ride, and Kodak Moments
