Rachael Ntenda, of Charlottesville, makes her way through the Bearfence Rock Scramble in the Shenandoah National Park in March.

On Saturday, Shenandoah National Park will begin its phased reopening with Skyline Dive and some trails becoming accessible to visitors at 8 a.m.

The drive and trails will remain open daily from 5 a.m. to 10 p.m. with normal entry fees, according to the park's website.

During the first phase, trails associated with Old Rag and Whiteoak — along with boundary trailheads and picnic areas — will remain closed.
