Keep in mind that bushwhacking in Shenandoah is a real hassle, except in winter. Poison Ivy and thorns are problematic. There have a few times when I paid dearly for hiking off trail in Shenandoah, whether it be cuts or poison ivy, I almost died one time from an infection caused by the poison ivy in Shenandoah.

I would advise people to steer clear of these plants. I think winter is the only time to bushwhack viably.

Thanks for the suggestion. I meant to add just such a paragraph but must have forgotten to write it. Check for it after the rattlesnakes warning.

Want some really bad bushwhacking? I went down Naked Creek a few weeks ago. There's no trail, but there are several falls on the topo maps, and I've always wanted to see them. Pretty falls, NASTY hiking. I might make a route page, but I can't imagine who else might want to go there.

I agree about bushwhacking in SNP (and in the Massanutten, too). Maybe there should be a page on the worst bushwhacks. However, sometimes a bushwhack is surprisingly pleasant, and you wouldn't know if you didn't try. Anyway, you have no choice when you want to keep climbing new peaks around here - eventually you run out of trails and you run out of named peaks.

I just discovered this page. Very interesting - I'll try to visit this area one of these days. Maybe I could climb the cliffs and continue bushwhacking northeast to the summit of Peak 3390...

There are nice views from the cliffs. If anything is visible from that summit, you would have a real sense of secrecy and isolation.

It's now on my list for next year.
