Description 

There are some hidden greenstone gems among an abundance of knifeblade turds.

Getting There 

Enter Skyline Drive from the southernmost point, park along the side of the road, and hike up the hill. Or hike into SNP along the AT. The area is not super concentrated, so unless you have a specific destination in mind, hiking along the AT is your best bet.

Climbing Season

For the Shenandoah National Park area.

Do you pay to get into this area or do you have to hike in on the AT every time?
