For fall break, my best friend (Trisha Westfall of Typically Trish) and I took a trip to the Shenandoah Valley. I'm from the small town of Broadway, Virginia, and I couldn't wait to show Trisha all that the Valley has to offer.
The area is especially beautiful in the fall: scenic views, crisp air, burnt orange leaves. We had to begin our weekend with a hike. My dad refers to this hike as "The Overlook" though most people don't know what it's official name is. It's in the George Washington National Forest, near New Market, and it branches off of the Wildflower Trail. It's a beautiful secret that ends in a breathtaking view of the Valley. The only semi-official reference I've seen to this trail is in this blog post.
Side note: this isn't an easy one. It is fairly long, steep and rocky (but well worth it). Check out the photos below!
Photos above are my own. Below are Trisha's.
The pictures speak for themselves. The view at the end of the hike is unlike any other in Virginia, and I'm so happy to share this experience with you all. Thanks for reading! :)
