This trail is a beautiful seldom traveled path in the depths of the Shenandoah National Park.

Robertson Mountain Trail is 6.2 miles in length and may be found deep within the national park. It travels through forests of beautiful old hemlocks, oak, birch, tulip poplars and mountain laurel. The shady understory is particularly impressive in the late spring when many rare species are in bloom. The terrain is slender and rocky at times with many ascensions and descensions.

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.

Continue on Old Rag fire road passing Corbin Cabin Trail and Corbin Hollow Trail which is about 2 miles into the woods. Within a short distance is Robertson Mountain Trail intersects on your left.
