Rediscovering Shenandoah‘s nature and beauty! - I was surprised to see how much the park has to offer! Was there just a few days and would like to return. We hiked, visited the caverns, skyline drive and enjoyed the small quaint towns and the Shenandoah River!

Don’t miss this audio guide well worth it - This audio guide was spot on. It gave us the highlights not to be missed and the places to pass. It worked and kept track of where we were and was easy to use

Fall Foliage Drive - Driving north entering southern entrance we drove all the way up north stopping at several overlooks. We stopped for lunch. The blackberry shake was excellent. Chicken salad wrap was very good. We did not do any hiking due to time constraints. Colors were beautiful. Great photos from south to north. Only disappointing thing was we did not see any black bears which is odd since so many live in the park. I was ready with a zoom lens but no wildlife at all including deer. We were there from am to almost dark. Very beautiful either way.

Excellent, informative, enjoyable Presentation - We found the narrative very well done. It was educational and very interesting. We only traveled the route from Elkton Rt. 33 north to Front Royal. Just one glitch that we found. At one point it says the overlook is on the left, but it was on the right. That isn’t a big deal, but I thought you would like to know. I don’t recall the exact location but somewhere between mile posts 40 & 30 driving north.

Bummer - I didn’t understand how to use the app. Called for help to download app.When I finally logged in correctly at the entrance. There was NO signal to begin downloading. Finally downloaded in about 30 miles in the park,Lots of wasted time for me.Next time tell new users to download app at home,etc .Then activate it in the park. In general I would rather use the Parks map or a book .
