Dark Hollow Falls - Shenandoah National Park

Dark Hollow Falls is a great water fall to check out if you are in Shenandoah National Park. The parking lot for it is a few hundred few north of Skyline Drive from Big Meadows! It is a really popular hike/walk so the path is well maintained and generally always free of debris. Also I think it is one of the trails that you are allowed to take/walk your dog along!
Also enjoy more photos from the trip at Big Medows here and storms of the valley here
Anyways enjoy the walk down to the main falls but the hike back up might make you tired. 

The nice mountain water is still really cold...


Tons of plants grow along the banks and we even saw a deer in the stream eating wild plants...

The creek/stream flowing down the mountain that you hike along is really gorgeous to see as you head down to the falls...

I actually climb up the side of the water falls to reach upper parts, guess your not supposed to or at least do it at your own risk of falling/slipping.

Enjoy the wild flowers as well!!
