Ok so I went hiking at Old Rag Mountain today in Madison, VA. The cost to do the hike is only 8 bucks!! From the parking lot at the bottom of the mountain, it's approximately 9.1 miles. The two options to get to the top is either via the Fire Road (4.5 miles) (the first two miles are on wide roads that aren't very steep. The last 2.5 miles are up a steeper grade with room for no more than two people standing side by side.) We chose to go up the three mile trail. The first two miles are on winding, narrow roads that can be steep at times. The last mile (and the most fun but most difficult) is on a rock scramble. The whole hike is a 3 (in my opinion) out of 5, but well worth it when you get to the summit. The view of the Blue Ridge Mountains was incredible (even though it was a little hazy and there were a lot of flies). This was my first time doing this hike and I really loved it. It was a lot of fun and I definately reccomend it to either first time hikers (if your up for it!) or experienced. So.... if your in the area make sure you check it out. Also feel free to ask me any questions.
Great view from the top but too ha…
