If you're looking for a little solitude, I'd recommend doing some hikes off the AT since it will be right during thru-hiker season if you go early in July.
I am planning on hiking somewhere for sure around the Shenandoah NP in July. Just need to find a good loop hike based on experience from other hikers and people familiar with that part of Virginia.
Your feedback Michele is very helpful!!

I am the hawk and there's blood on my feathers, but time is still turning they soon will be dry;
All those who see me, and all who believe in me, share in the freedom I feel when I fly.”
