Limberlost is a wonderful trail of 1.3 miles that travels through a forest of virgin towering hemlocks ranging in age from 350 to 400 years. George Freeman Pollock and his wife Addie, are credited with having the hemlocks spared from logging. They personally paid lumbermen $10 per tree to leave the forest stand. The Pollocks are also credited with having influenced Congress in the early 1920s to study the possibility of this area becoming a national park. An important feature of this trail is that it is wheelchair accessible.
Directions: From Front Royal, VA, Skyline Drive travels the entire length of Shenandoah National Park. Mile markers are placed along the right-hand side of the road heading south. They are numbered from north to south beginning at the northern terminus in Front Royal, Virginia. Facilities, trails and park features use the mile markers as points of reference. Park at the entrance to Old Rag fire road at milepost 43.
