Thanks for posting, Michael. I did the adjacent section of Shenandoah along the AT recently, starting at Front Royal, and really enjoyed the area a lot. We noticed your ridge across the valley. There really are plenty of big open views there.

Great article, Michael (and not just because of the undeserved shout out)! I miss those ridges and the superb DC UL camaraderie.

I visited Massanutten for the first time last year and was very impressed how beautiful an area it was given it's proximity to D.C. This is a great write-up that I'm sure your fellow East Coast backpackers will appreciate.

great writeup on 04/30/2014 11:16:18 MDT Print View

I was particularly impressed with your write up here because of how much info you got in here for everyone and the way it was laid out. Noting the campsites and details on the water situations, many possible alternate routes, as well as some general geographical info is much appreciated. Nice to see this level of effort in your article, looks like a fantastic hike!

I am a PATC trail overseer in the southern Massenutten region which continues on south at the white conector trailand and would encourage anyone in the area to check this section out also. It ends in the region of Harrisonburg, Virginia. Has good water sources and a nice shelter at the south end. Order maps from the Potomac Appalachian Trail club.--Bigfoot15
