Project to Clean Up Shenandoah Summit Launched

The Culpeper Star-Exponent reports that the highest peak in Shenandoah National Park is on track for some a major change as part of a slew of national projects marking a centennial celebration.


The National Park Service and a local philanthropic partner will invest $120,000 to improve the historic observation point and access to Hawksbill Mountain. This initiative is part of the Centennial Challenge projects celebrating the National Park Service’s 100th anniversary on Aug. 25.


The Shenandoah National Park Trust, based in Charlottesville, will contribute $62,000 toward the Hawksbill project, which is slated to begin later this spring, according President Susan Sherman.


It’s formerly one of Shenandoah National Park’s most popular attractions but recent vandalism and exposure to the elements has caused a source of embarrassment for the SNP Trust. The project will repair its flagstone floor and replace missing mortar and stone in the walls
