Let's get rockin' and rollin' in Shenandoah this spring with a good old-fashioned rock scramble! While Old Rag may be justly famous for its rock scramble, this hike in the Central District of Shenandoah National Park offers a similar challenge, only this scramble is quite a bit shorter than Old Rag's and doesn't make you climb a mountain just to get to the funhouse part. Shortly after we begin from Skyline Drive, our path will take us scrambling over jumbled rocks atop Bearfence Mountain on our way to a 360-degree overlook. After taking in this and other outstanding views, we will continue south a few miles on the Appalachian Trail to the Posocin Fire Road. As we gently descend along this broad road,, we will pass by the picturesque if primitive Posocin Cabin, perhaps still occupied by the weekend's renters. We will proceed further downhill to see the ruins of an old Episcopal mission. We will then retrace our steps and return via the AT to our cars (skipping the rock scramble on the way back). Our strenuous 10-mile round-trip hike has an elevation gain of approximately 1100 feet, featuring climbing up, over, between and among rocks of every size and description. The scrambling, while not too difficult, does require a bit of full-body coordination, offering a decent way to limber up for (among other outings) Adventuring’s Old Rag Mountain hike later this season. Bring layers of clothing, lunch, water, sturdy footwear, and about $18 for fees. We will meet at the Kiss & Ride lot of the East Falls Church Metro at 8:30 a.m.; note the early start time.
