Date Climbed: Oct 30, 2011


Went up ridgeline scramble, came down saddle trail in back. Snow on the top 2/3rds, very nice but cold and windy.

WildBlueFavorite place on earth  Sucess!


This was one of the first mountains I ever climbed, if not the first. I was 11 years old, and since then I have probably been up it at least 30 times, during all seasons of the year. Once when I was 14 my friends and I did a winter ascent, off trail, with homemade ice axes! In a lot of ways I grew up on this mountain.

Bob SihlerIntro to a greater world  Sucess!

Bob Sihler

Been up there many times and in all seasons. Winter is the best because it's less crowded, the air is cleaner, and snow and ice can throw interesting twists into the route.

This was my first mountain that required anything more than plain hiking to get to the top. That was in May 1994, I think. It opened my eyes to a bigger and better mountain world.

Great dayhike with some remaining fall colors. The summit was packed with a corporate team building party having quite a good time with sandwiches and wine.

A welcome relief to get away from the noise and traffic of DC! To date, this is my favorite peak in the South.

callthedoctorWesterner on Vacation  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jun 17, 2010


Wife and I were on vacation from Arizona and staying at Massanutten Resort...we did several waterfall hikes in the Shenandoah NP. Saw this hike online as favored in the area and decided to do it and I'm glad we did. Very nice hike, the class III stuff was a blast...we did the entire loop. Hindsite, I think it would have been better to do Ridge trail to Byrd's Nest then back again...as the fire road back was a bit wide for my liking. Overall a great day, saw a HUGE garter snake.

mtsptfamAwesome Creation  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jun 24, 2010


I climbed this mt. many times when I was a teen and had moved on to bigger and higher mountains. I decided to revisit Old Rag a few years ago and was reminded of how great some of the climbs are here in the East. I took a few well behaved teens the past two times and enjoyed seeing them soak it up. I only have two issues with this hike. Even if you go at a non busy time you still have to park at the second parking lot now that the upper lot is closed to the public. The second is the new trend for people to hike up the fire road and down the ridge tends to traffic jam things even more in the tight sections since your waiting for people to go up and come down. It is just easier if everyone is going in the same direction. I understand why though and that wont keep me from going back again and again myself in the upcoming years.

chilkootGreat southern hike  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Apr 29, 2010


What a nice hike. Very different from other hikes in the area, I have wanted to do this one for awhile. Took my two kids and they loved all the scrambles, caves, ropes, and boulders. Great views from the top with clear skies. Note that the upper parking area is now permamently closed.

This was my first mountain East of the Mississippi and it inspired me to venture out and explore new mountains around VA. I have since done it two other times and love it.

Date Climbed: Nov 23, 1988


It was many years ago, but I think this was my first mountain..... I was with 2 or 3 other girls from my Girl Scout troop, and we did it as a 2 day backpack... wish I had some pictures!

Did the full loop with a group of friends. I was the only one to have previously climbed the peak, so it was fun to expose new folks to this great east coast mountain.
