An exceptional mountain, very different from the rest - that's Old Rag. The distinct rock-covered ridgecrest in the distance has long been a noted area landmark.

Old Rag's rugged summit consists of spectacular outcroppings of Old Rag granite, the oldest rock in Shenandoah National Park. Extremely resistant to weathering and erosion, Old Rag granite gives the ridgecrest a "rugged" appearance that prompted the mountain's name.
