Shenandoah Mountain Trail

George Washington and Jefferson National Forests

Length: 23.7 miles

The Shenandoah Mountain Trail is a 23.7-mile remote, backcountry trail which winds through the ridges of the Shenandoah Mountain Range. The trail, built in the 1930s by the Civilian Conservation Corps, features excellent views of the Deerfield Valley to the east and the Cowpasture River Valley to the west. The Shenandoah Mountain Trail intersects several "old woods" roads and other trails to provide shorter loop opportunities or add variety to the hike.

The trail sign for Shenandoah Mountain Trail South is at the gate on FDR 396 on the south side of US 250. Access Shenandoah Mountain Trail heading north from the Confederate Breastworks loop trail.

Located on US 250 about 2.0 miles East of Head Waters, VA. In Ramsey’s Draft Wilderness.
