Hazel Mountain Overlook

Shenandoah National Park, Virginia

Just 75 miles from Washington, DC, Shenandoah National Park is a 200,000-acre natural escape, replete with cascading waterfalls, peaceful hollows, challenging hiking trails and scenic routes along Skyline Drive. Pack a picnic and head to Hazel Mountain Overlook for panoramic vistas of Buck Ridge, Hazel Mountain and the distant glory that is Old Rag. Plan your trip in early fall, when the foliage makes the surrounding territory ablaze with bright reds, luminescent oranges and vibrant yellows.
