We came here in late April - a few days before the Blue Ridge Parkway reached its open season, but we were disappointed by the overall lack of facilities and information to be had here. There was no indoor access to the center, and the bathrooms were still closed for the season. We were able to get an official map from a map stand, and we were also able to use the nearby Humpback Rocks Picnic Area (which itself has closed latrines for the season). For being the first facility at the nothern end of the Parkway, we were expecting more.

Visitor center closed; however, there was a Park Ranger outside, with table set up on the sidewalk with park maps and stamps for park-passport books. He needed a shady spot! It was near 90 deg and he was in full sun. Hot for him and hot for those he was talking to. Restrooms were opened, but needed cleaning. Very damp with wet floors. The short trail to the farm was very interesting. Signs were posted what each structure was about.

We parked at the visitor center (closed and boarded up), walked through the farm (neat-ish though we didn't linger and there wasn't much going on), and then down the road a bit to get to the Humpback Rocks trail (our real goal). We should have just driven around the curve to the trailhead parking lot - will remember that next time. The trail was rigorous for us, after some rain and a year of pandemic couch-zooming. There were rustic benches along the way, which were welcome and much needed for us on a trail that goes up in elevation perhaps more than horizontal distance. In addition to steep inclines, the trail includes climbing over fallen trees, dancing over slick rocks and often choosing between mud pits and steeper rocks nearby. The trail also has deep steps up and down built into the trail to avoid erosion that can be rough on the knees and winding. As you get to the top, the climate changes around you, cooler and windier until you finally reach the payoff - jagged rocks projecting out into open space - the highest elevation around. The view is stunning - if a bit vertigo inducing - and worth the climb. Take your time, hike safely, and be prepared. Take a seat from time to time to enjoy the peace and quiet despite it being a fairly busy trail.

On Sept. 8, 2020 my wife and I visited the parkway. We often visit and always before had great experiences. This day was totally different. The programs at the VC are great, we look forward in particular to the music that is often offered. We tour the nearby area and look to the VC for support when necessary. This day the VC restrooms were closed, there were 4 Portapottys available, 2 at either end of the parking lot, and they were in great and dire need of cleaning. We did not use them. Thank goodness for the restrooms at the nearby picnic area, they were fine. If there was a mechanical reason for the VC restroom closure it could be understood but this information was not made available. So on a busy Labor Day weekend what was provided was totally inadequate and VERY unhealthy. Cleaning was not being done at all. What a shame and what a mis-use of funding. You should be ashamed of yourselves and of the poor quality of services you provided this day.

I can't say anything about the other features at this visit center, but I really enjoyed the hike that we did. We went in the dead of winter and it was super cold, but also just lovely. Would recommend hiking boots in a major way, since it can be slippery, but also there are some big pushes up the mountain. Short, but steep. Great views await you.

This is a wonderful stop with much to do. You can simply explore the exhibits in the visitor center if you're strapped for time. You can take the steep hike to the Humpback Rocks for an incredible view. You can hike over to the reconstructed 1890's farm to see what life was like in this part of Virginia then. Whether you're starting or ending your Blue Ridge Parkway trek, you'll be glad you stopped here.

A grand hike into the top of the Shenandoah mountains where we went just before sunset where we were rewarded with the most amazing views of the mountains and valleys .This hike is a bit rugged and spots and would not be advised for anyone that has trouble walking at elevation or over varied terrain

My husband and I have never hiked any trails in Shenandoah, and this was our first! Of course, the hiking experience is difficult if you have never done it but we made it to the top and the view was worth the effort.The hike is short, but pretty steep and rocky. The second half of the hike is more rocky and treacherous. It’s about 40 min up, and 30 min down. Do not rush with your footing because some rocks were loose. If you pace yourself you will have a Great hike.

The hike to Humpback Rock is a short distance but a very steep and strenuous climb. it was worth it though. When you get to the Rocks, you have a great view of the valley and in October, the many colors of autumn

When my friend and I walked this trail in July there were surprising abundant wildflowers and butterflies. I also saw and/or heard several wood thrush. We hiked up the steep trail and returned by way of the less steep AT so it was a loop. If I return I would repeat that route because I prefer to hike steep up and a more gradual climb down. But if you are not accustomed to hiking you may want to take the longer route up. The views from the top are 360 degrees and incredible! I definitely hope to return. The staff at the visitor center across the street were very helpful even though they had lost power. The gift shop is surprisingly well stocked considering its location.
