Went snooping on North Marshall Mountain in the Shenandoah Mountains on Tuesday. A nice out-and-back 6.2-mile hike, easy to moderate difficulty except for the 1,000-foot elevation gain, and lots of solitude. (Except black bears – two adults and two cubs!) Unfortunately, there’s no ‘payoff’ vista at the summit due to foliage, so I’ll have to save this hike for group use until late Autumn or Winter, when the leaves have fallen.
A Google map of the route is here, but your mileage may vary, as they say (mine did). There is room for about 15 cars in Jenkins Gap parking lot, plus a few more at the adjacent overlook. The image used to make the topographical map is from Topoquest, here.
