wanderweg83Turk Mountain  Sucess!


One of my first climbs in Shenandoah NP. Fairly easy, with some fun scrambling at the summit. There is also a nice east-facing outcrop on the way to the summit that is worth checking out.

We managed to squeeze this one in on our way out of the park. It was well worth it. Scrambling on the pale rocks was a nice treat.

We did the Mooreman's River Trail as a shuttle and then did Turk Mountain. Nice views from the summit. I think I might have also done it about 35 years earlier.

We did the shorter version of this hike starting from the Turk Mtn Gap parking area. It was a lovely hike and we loved the first overlook even better than the summit. There was a swarm of bugs hanging around the place we chose to sit at the summit, they looked like ants with wings (don't know my bugs) and my friend heard a buzzing noise which he thought might be a wasps nest so we didn't hang around there too long. I think the first overlook (0.1 miles from summit) would be a better place for lunch anyway, but both had excellent views.

We did Humpback Rocks earlier in the day. Turk Mountain was a more rigorous hike. We didn't know the view from the summit would be so great. We were pleasantly surprised.
