Trail Overview

Blakey Ridge Fire Trail Runs along the edge of the Shenandoah National Park on one side of the trail. There are three entry points, the first off Aylor Rd. in the Robertson District, the second from the Burnt Ridge Fire Trail, and the third point connects directly to the Lower Rapidan Trail on Rapidan Rd. The trail offers both gradual ascents and descents up to 12% in grade that wind through the Blue Ridge Mountains. This is a point-to-point trail, that also ties into the Lower Rapidan Trail. There is a large parking area at the juncture of Blakey Ridge Trail and the Lower Rapidan Trail. There is spotty to no cell service and you will find increased popularity of this trail as it gets closer to the Rapidan River.
