Old Rag offers hikers one of the best mountain top views in all of Virginia. The hike itself is strenuous, requiring a rock scramble and approximately 3.5 miles of trekking with many viewpoints along the way, but the real pay off is at the top. The trailhead is accessible via Nethers Road inside Shenandoah National Park. If you’re in the mood to tackle a cold weather challenge this weekend, bundle up and head for Old Rag. If not, file this one away for later!
