Jenkins Gap Overlook and Trailhead Parking Area on Skyline Drive in Shenandoah

Jenkins Gap Overlook is an eastern facing overlook at Mile Marker 12.4 on Skyline Drive in Shenandoah National Park in the northern section between Front Royal and Mathews Arm. It is between Indian Run Overlook to the north and Hogwallow Flats Overlook to the south.

The Jenkins Gap Parking Area which serves as the Jenkins Gap Trailhead is just to the north of the overlook on the west side of Skyline Drive. It also provides access to the Appalachian Trail.

The Jenkins Gap Trail is a 1.4 mile one way descent with a few scenic views and a descent through the forest. The trail is reportedly not well kept.

There is also a difficult 13 mile loop trail utilizing the Appalachian Trail, Mount Marshall Road and the Bluff Trail that goes by South Marshall, Mount Marshall and North Marshall.
