Shenandoah trail maps
If you’re looking for one Shenandoah trail map to cover the entire national park, then you might want to get the National Geographic Trails Illustrated map from Amazon. It probably isn’t necessary for a quick day-hike, but it certainly comes in handy when doing overnight backpacking trips. Otherwise, the free maps below should be sufficient, although they aren’t in color and don’t have topographic lines.
This is an Old Rag trail map (150 kb). It shows trails to Old Rag Mountain, Upper and Lower Whiteoak Falls, and others in the area. Trailheads from Skyline Drive and other nearby Virginia roads are included.
This is a Hawksbill trail map (150 kb), showing hiking trails to Hawksbill Mountain, Rose River Falls, and a few others accessed from Skyline Drive. You’ll also see the Rock Springs hut o the Appalachian Trail.
This is a Big Meadows trail map (150 kb), showing trails near the Byrd Visitor Center to waterfalls such as Dark Hollow Falls, Rose River Falls, and Lewis Falls. You’ll also find the Big Meadows Lodge and campground.
This is a Riprap trail map (150 kb), the southernmost hiking trail map for Shenandoah. Blackrock, Chimney Rock, Trayfoot Mountain, Wildcat Ridge, Calvary Rocks, and other areas are all accessible from here.
Shenandoah lodging map
Shenandoah is a big park, so it may be hard to decide where to stay. To the right, I’ve linked to a Hotels.com interactive lodging map centered on Luray, which is located near park headquarters and the Skyland area. You can also browse the highest-rated lodging in Luray to compare prices, reviews, and photos. Otherwise, consider Waynesboro if arriving from the south and Front Royal if coming from the north.
Shenandoah campground maps
You can find hundreds of reviews on the Mathews Arm Campground, Big Meadows Campground, and Loft Mountain Campground on TripAdvisor. If you’re feeling fancy, you might want to look at vacation rentals in the Shenandoah area. Or just read reviews and compare prices of hotels and other Shenandoah lodging.
Shenandoah things to do map
This interactive attractions map from TripAdvisor is a great place to start to plan your Shenandoah trip; I just love reading personal reviews and learning from others’ first-hand experience. This is why I find the TripAdvisor readers’ top Shenandoah things to do list to be quite handy for trip planning. Check out the reviews: Old Rag comes in #2, with Dark Hollow Falls as #3. What do you think is #1? Skyline Drive, of course!
Various Shenandoah maps
This is a simple map of Shenandoah National Park (250 kb), showing just Skyline Drive and the major developed areas along its route. This is the simplest map for printing that shows the major park facilities.
This Shenandoah surficial geology map (6.7 mb) better shows the topographical relief in the park and identifies young rock deposits. You really get an good picture of the park’s mountainous landscape.
