Crompton Gap to Dickey Ridge Entrance SNP

  • 2 days ago · 9:00 AM
  • This location is shown only to members

I have not done this Hike before . I want to start st Compton Gap MP 10.4 and hike to the Dickey Ridge Entrance at the beginning of the parkway about 10.5 miles. We will start on the AT and hike to springhouse trail hitting the dickey ridge trail back to the entrance.

I will need to coordinate rides someone parking at the entrance and at Compton Gap. 

We will figure it out as we find out who's coming.

It's going to be cool so please dress appropriately. Bring plenty of water and a snack. If you have a medical condition please let me know.

I will post my phone later this week.

It will be fun!!

Thanks 

Jan

    If you can park your car at dicky ridge visitor center, that would shorten your hike to 5 miles. We can pick you up there around 9:15 am and You can bail out there which is a halfway mark. I believe if you GPS skyline entrance in front Royal, ,it would take you to the entrance. Once at the entrance, Dickey Ridge visitor center is 5 miles.

    I would really like to join this hike but as a novice in hiking, its just a bit long for me...so I will take a bye and look forward to another time, when it makes sense. Have a great day on the trail.

    Thanks Judy. That would be great. Would that be where the Skyline Drive meets 340? And what time would you want me there?

    I got the message but do not have a pass. I think I will have to leave early enough to get in without one, however. I will need instructions on how to get to Dickey Ridge.

      you could meet me before the entrance gate to the park outside front royal and ride in with me.

      4 days ago

  • Janet H.

    Let's all meet at the entrance of Dickey Ridge and decide who will drive and which cars will stay. I believe everyone going so far has a pass. Please confirm that you got this message. Thanks!

    Hi Jan - Just as a heads-up, I have a friend that's a plumber. He is helping me with a new shower. He may only be available to help me Saturday. So, I'm hoping to hike, but may need to bail out. I should know for sure by tomorrow PM.
