This is a great though strenuous spring leg stretcher to celebrate the start of National Park Week. This lollipop-shaped hike showcases both waterfalls and views, two of Shenandoah National Park's natural beauties. We will start our hike at the Upper Hawksbill parking lot and ascend a short distance to lunch upon the Hawksbill summit, the highest point in the park. Properly fueled and warmed up, we will travel south via the Appalachian Trail to the Big Meadows area, where we will descend steeply down a rugged trail towards Lewis Spring Falls. After some proper Dynamically Lollygagging,™ we will make a switch-backed ascent to meet the Appalachian Trail and retrace our steps. Along the way, we will stop off at the Blackrock overlook for one last vista before returning to the Upper Hawksbill parking lot. The total length of our hike will be around 13 miles with approximately 2500 feet of elevation gain, so this trek is recommended only for experienced hikers in good aerobic condition. For your consideration, some spots may be muddy and slick due to spring runoff.

Park admission is free in honor of National Park Week! Bring plenty of water, lunch/snacks, bug spray, sunscreen and about $16 for transportation and Adventuring trip fee. We will stop at the Sheetz in Warrenton on our way to the trailhead, where you may purchase made-to-order sandwiches for lunch. Meet at 9:00 a.m. at the East Falls Church Metro Kiss & Ride lot. An optional post-hike dinner meal stop may be made on the return trip to East Falls Church, at the wishes of the hike participants.
