Pocosin Trail meanders down a fire road from Skyline Drive in Shenandoah park. Along the trail is an old cabin and the ruins of an old missionary in the Shenandoah hills.

This is a very nice hike/walk. I ran the trail a little to increase the workout. If you continue past the old mission moving south along the trails there are some really cool artifacts there. I uploaded a few pictures. It's worth walking an extra half mile.

Good easy hike. Something to see if you need an easy day.
