Beautiful Waterfall

This is a very beautiful waterfall and one of my favorite in Virginia. There are also some great swimming holes at the base of the falls. Because it is right off of HWY 220 it is very popular.

great hike

this is a great hike that will take you past 2 of the waterfall in the central district in Shenandoah NP. Dark Hollow Falls flows year around but Rose River Falls is best seen during the Spring or after a few days of heavy rain. If you would like to hike a few extra miles and see a third water fall you can hike to Lewis Spring Falls.

best camp site

this is an amazing place to camp and the views at sunset are just breathtaking.

great 10k run

this is a great 10k loop but i recommend running it during the spring, fall or really in the morning before it's 100 degrees.

Great for families

Big Trees is a great spot for the whole family and the trees are just beautiful.

Great Spot for Families

Big Trees is an amazing place and is a great place for the hole family to enjoy and it is not a crowed as the late national parks.

Easy Hike with a Great View

This is an easy hike with an outstanding view and is well with the trip. The view offers a great view of Camden and the ocean.

Beautiful Lighthouse

This is one of the iconic lighthouses in New England and is a must see. It is super easy to get to and Fort William Park also offers a lot to explore while you are there.

Amazing Lighthouse

This is one of the best lighthouses in New England to photograph. The lighthouse sits right on the bay, on a rocky cliff which can lead to some amazing photographs both at sunrise and sunset.

Amazing hike

This is such an amazing hike and one of the first hikes I did after moving to Virginia. This waterfall is beautiful year around but there is something special about this waterfall during fall. This is a popular trail so expect to see people even during the middle of the week.

views worth the effort

This is a long hike but the the views from the summits are breathtaking. I recommend doing the hike in the spring to fall before its 100 degrees outside.

Beautiful waterfall

This is a beautiful waterfall that is best seen during the spring and early summer. It is an easy hike and is great for families.

Very Popular

Ice House Reservoir is a very popular spot because it is in a great location. The Reservoir is beautiful and this is a great place to make a back camp while you explore the area.

Outstanding view

I spent most of my summers growing up exploring this area of California and it is a very beautiful area, just make sure Ebbetts Pass is open. This is a great hike with an outstanding view!

beautiful lake

It is a short easy hike to a beautiful alpine lake but because of this it is very crowded.

great hike

This is a great hike to a beautiful alpine lake. just check road conditions first because Ebbetts Pass is closed during the winter.

Amazing hike

Sword Lake was the first backing packing trip I did with my family when i was 6, and I've done it a few time since them. The lake is great to swim in and has some rocks you can jump off of. It is also a great place to camp before summiting the Dardanelles.

Great spot in Yosemite

This is a great location in Yosemite and and not a busy at the valley floor. One of my favorite times to visit Tuolumne Meadows is durning the late spring when the the meadow is full of wild flowers.

Great camping location

this is a great location to camp in Yosemite. Its location makes a great base camp for exploring areas of Yosemite outside of the valley floor and there are a lot of outstanding hikes in the area.

outstanding view

Grizzly Peak has an outstanding view of the of the East Bay and San Francisco no matter what time of day you visit, but the sunsets are magical.

An amazing view

Mount Marcy has an outstanding 360 degree view from the top and is well with the trip. The trail is well maintained and easy to follow.

The view is worth it

Algonquin Peak has an outstanding 360 degree view from the top and is well with the trip. the trail is steep at times but once you reach the summit you will forget about everything but the amazing view.

Amazing view from the top

The hike to the top is worth the view, I highly recommend it.
