Q:

What are the best photo hikes in the Southeast?

I live in the Southeast and I’m a pretty good amateur photographer. What are some of the most amazing, camera-worthy hikes in my neck of the woods?

Old Rag, Virginia
As much as I’d like to exclude Old Rag from this list because of the throngs of hikers from DC who clamber to its rocky, 3,290-foot summit every summer, I can’t. No other hike in the Shenandoah National Park opens onto as much eye candy as the eight-mile trek and brief (but surprisingly challenging) rock scramble on the Ridge and Saddle trails. Go on a weekday to dodge the crowds.
