trail locations for Virginia

it is a nice waterfall up on Skyline Drive I enjoyed it another good waterfall on Skyline Drive is overall Falls you have to walk the Tuscarora

The milage here is actually incorrect it's like an out and back x 2. The waterfall is pretty cool but you could miss it if you don't look around . It was super foggy so I'm sure that plays into it . If you want some serious leg work go down the other side of buzzard hill and go to the next climb and back . Pretty climby sobo on buzzard hill. I dig the area though and will try it again .

A great trail with lots of beautiful scenery - an awesome place for a walk or run for all different kinds of trailblazers! This is a perfect place to spend a Saturday picnicking, casting a reel into the water, playing fetch at the dog park, biking or strolling through the thick wooded trails, and taking in some of the many breathtaking vistas!

Trail is now a development. NO ACCESS

Nice trail that flattens out to a pleasant highland meadow. The trail typically offers views of Paris, VA, however Sky Meadows was enveloped in a thick blanket of fog during this hike and the Paris Overlook was completely obscured. This created an interesting atmosphere for our jaunt through the forests and fields, but I look forward to returning on a clear day to take in the views.

Love this trail it has pretty woods and beautiful wildlife it's got enough up and down hills that makes it a small challenge. Yes there is a good amount of people on it but I view that as a safer trail for a female (or anybody) to run on incase anything we're to happen biggest downside is the roots from the trees, it's a trail you definitely have to pick your feet up on because take it from me you WILL trip

Wonderful trail! The first two miles are quite muddy/slippery but after that is smooth sailing. Lots of views from the top so it's easy to find a nice spot to sit down and have lunch while looking over the valley without being crowded by fellow hikers. Would definitely do it again!

Great Trail, make sure you see the top of the hike. Well worth it.

For a short hike, the scenery was great. Along the river on the way up which was moving quickly over many cascades. The falls at the top were a great destination and the woodland path down had some nice views and the quiet rumble of the river in the distance.

Trails not well marked and overgrown. Not really suited for hiking more for hunting.
