    This is a great hike if you want to be walking along a creek for most of the hike, we only can across many 5 other hikers. It took us approx. 3hrs to complete the hike.  more »

    The Rose Rover Loop Trail, which starts at the waterfall is highly recommended. It is about 3-4 hours on the road (always depends on whether you want may still bathe or simply enjoy the peace and quiet).

    It is a tough hike to the rose river falls from skyline drive. It is a loop, and you get to see three waterfalls.. dark hollow is easy, accessible via the rose river fire road, but to go further on into the rose river falls the hike is steep and rocky most of the way.

Where to stay in Shenandoah National Park

All developed accommodation in Shenandoah National Park lies on or near Skyline Drive. The park offers one lodge, one resort, and one set of cabins, all of which a private concessionaire operates. With 179 rooms, rustic cabins, multi-unit lodges, and modern suites, Skyland Resort provides the most places to turn in for the night. You can also choose one of four campgrounds, all of which remain open through spring, summer, and fall. Of these, only Matthews Campground accepts reservations; if you plan to visit the park on a summer or fall weekend, arrive early at the other campgrounds to grab a site. Plenty of inns, bed and breakfasts, resorts, motels, and hotels surround the park. Stay in the nearby college town of Harrisonburg if you're looking for a lively nighttime setting.
