Description

In Shenanadoah National Park just off Skyline Drive near MM 10. Quality greenstone in a nice shady area. Can be crowded with hikers on weekends but climbers are sparse. There’s definitely something to do for every skill level.

Getting There

Park at the Compton Gap parking area roughy 10.5 miles south from Shenandoah National Park's north entrance in Front Royal. Follow the short trail that forks to the left for Fort Windham Rocks.
