Shenandoah National Park - Limberlost Trail

Map of TRACK Trail at Shenandoah National Park's Limberlost Trail

The Limberlost TRACK Trail is a 1.3-mile loop built for visitors of all ages and abilities.

This gentle trail winds through sprawling mountain laurel, tall oaks, and feathery ferns. It’s home to all sorts of creatures. And it’s a place of many changes. Discover the signs of those changes and explore the wonders of Limberlost using your senses and imagination.

Just 75 miles from the bustle of Washington, D.C., Shenandoah National Park is your escape to recreation and re-creation. Cascading waterfalls, spectacular vistas, quiet wooded hollows—take a hike, a meander along Skyline Drive, or a picnic with the family. 200,000 acres of protected lands are haven to deer, songbirds, the night sky…and you.
