Of the many waterfalls in Shenandoah National Park, Dark Hollow Falls is the closest to Skyline Drive. A downhill hike of about .5 miles takes you to this scenic waterfall where the Hogcamp Branch of the Rose River tumbles down 70 feet over a series of drops. The trail starts at mile 50.7 on Skyline Drive, just north of Big Meadows. The route is 1.4 miles round-trip and like all falls along Skyline Drive, you must climb back up to your car at the end. This can be challenging for some, so come prepared. Wear sturdy shoes, carry plenty of water and perhaps a snack, and dress for the weather. Summertime storms can cause dramatic temperature changes.
