Trail Overview

Hite Hollow is located in the George Washington National Forest, west of Staunton, VA. It's a basic trail that offers outstanding views of the surrounding area. The trail is mainly rock and dirt and has several switchbacks that take you up the ridge line. Many of these switchbacks offer stunning views. During winter months there isn't much wildlife or vegetation present, but during spring and summer months one can expect to see the full range of flora and fauna that is native to the Virginia mountains. Cell service is extremely spotty along the trail, so plan accordingly.

Trail was in normal good condition. It was partially obstructed in 3 places with downed trees but I cleared to a full size 4x4 width so no obstructions now. Really nice trail, great views in winter, and tops out at 3200 feet of elevation.
