A good visitor center with a great picnic area with awesome views. We took the Snead Farm trail and hiked about 3 miles and even saw a bear.

My husband & I stopped here on our Skyline Drive, I wanted to get some post cards and a souvenir shirt. I was disappointed in the selection for women, I expected more. The view from there is gorgeous though.

Had an awesome time visiting this visitor center. It is a great starting point for a walk to Fox Hollow and the Snead barn. There are great views from the back lawn. Staff are very friendly and helpful. :)

A classic National Park Service experience, plus some! The view is breathtaking; it's very wide and extends in many directions for a great distance. The visitors center has friendly, informative NPS rangers, a good movie, interesting exhibits, and a nice gift shop. I think the...More

We really enjoyed the friendly and knowledgeable staff Rangers and the lovely lawn views of the Shenandoah Valley (Page Valley) about 2,500 feet below. Separate restrooms a walk away and a small gift shop complete the Dickey Ridge Center's facilities. Some daily programs are offered...More
