Shenandoah National Park, located in Virginia, is known for its abundant waterfalls scattered throughout the Park. Shenandoah boasts hundreds of miles of hiking trails, but the most popular always have at least one waterfall at their destination. To help visitors appreciate the waterfalls within the Park, the Shenandoah Natural History Association has published a booklet titled “Hikes to Waterfalls in Shenandoah National Park.”
This booklet provides detailed maps and point-by-point trail directions to each waterfall. Statistics about each waterfall, such as height, are included, along with hiking tips and other useful information. The guide is available for a small fee at the Dickey Ridge Visitor Center (mile 4.6 on Skyline Drive, from the north), Byrd Visitor Center (mile 51), Loft Mountain Information Center (mile 79.5), and entrance stations and concession facilities.
The Shenandoah Natural History Association was formed in 1950 as a non-profit organization to support park interpretive and educational programs. The Association publishes numerous guides to the Park. You can reach the Association at (540) 999-3582 for more information.
