The Appalachian Trail in the SNP South District

An Exemplar of Public Stewardship

What Is Our Role In the District?

Trails, Trails, & Trails!

You are entering the Web Gateway into the Potomac Appalachian Trail Club and our members who maintain the Appalachian National Scenic Trail in the South District of Shenandoah National Park.

The 45 miles of the A.T. in this District offer a more remote experience than elsewhere in the Park, despite the presence of Skyline Drive, Loft Mountain, and Dundo Picnic Grounds. In fact, there is proportionately more federally designated wilderness here than in the other SNP districts.
