I would like to do a section of the AT in the Shenandoah national park for about 4 nights or a loop hike in that park with some great views perhaps the Swift Run area?

I am an experianced hiker, but I have never been in the Shenandoah NP.
I am aware of the need for permits, but I have never hiked in Va.
The kicker is that because of other Planned hiking trips and a family wedding I have two choices and they are both in July. The choices are--- leaving Pennsylvania Starting July 6th and driving down to virgina to start a 4-5 nighter
Leaving Pa on July 22nd to start a 4-5 nighter in Va.
Anyone hiking around that area in July?
I am open for all options or suggestions
