We are the Potomac Appalachian Trail Club who volunteer our efforts to the Park and to hikers in the South District.
We are the members of the Potomac Appalachian Trail Club who maintain 45 miles of the Appalachian Trail, along with many miles of blue-blazed side trails and four trail huts in the South District of Shenandoah National Park.
Trails in this District offer a much more remote experience than in the North and Central districts of the Park. This is true, despite the presence of Skyline Drive and facilities such as at Loft Mountain and Dundo Picnic Grounds. For example, there is proportionately more federally designated wilderness here than in the SNP North and Central districts.
