A: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.
