Hiking

This is probably the hardest hike I’ve done since moving here. It’s quite literally 2300ft straight up and then 2300ft straight down. Surprisingly, going down to as the hardest part. At times the trail was hard to follow. Definitely went off trail a bunch both purposefully and unintentionally. All in all I loved this hike. It pushed me. Make sure to pack extra water, as this was the first time I ran out in a long time. Also, start early.

Trail is sneaky... it’s deceiving if you start from the top and work your way down as it’s much harder to get back up afterwards.... great waterfalls and scenery though.

Great hike. Counter clockwise on the loop part you will go up hill both ways which we did. A few small creek crossings (description says river crossing but it’s certainly not as large as a river). Rocky and uneven in some areas but not bad.

Last part is forest road, asphalt, and grass cutting through the 4H center.

This one was tough. We started from the lower trailhead, towards Skyline Drive, so after a mile and a half we reached the lower main waterfall. There are pretty much four sections to this waterfall: the section closest to the waterfall seemed to cater to the college kids. There was a lot of beer, weed, and "other" activities. The next section was the home of fish and water snakes. Third, is a smaller section (big enough for two families) but the natural waterslide is a BLAST! And lastly, is your typical swimming hole! I tried to hike it all the way to the top but between the heat, and the uphill battle with the rocky terrain I just couldn't do it. I made it 2 more miles uphill then headed back down to reward myself in the waterfalls! :)

I did this trail plus the browns gap fire road to form a 12 mile loop. The out and back is great, you get to see the blackrock and furnace mountain summits. Both fun and different! Not too strenuous. The second part (the fire road) is ideal if you are looking to get some exercise or up hill running in. It’s easy to walk on and still feels like you are on a trail. Definitely worth it!

a short hike down a fire road. Trail is somewhat rocky, but easy. It's less than a mile to the falls. Once you get there, you will need to climb down a little bit to to view them, but totally worth it.

Hiking

Rigorous hike with lots of views. A good part of this hike is along a stream with several small falls, two main falls. The highest falls are viewed from a distance. We were able to get in the water twice (hiked this on 7/10/20). Note that there were millions of millipedes on the rock face of the waterfalls, in the moss, and around the pools. They didn’t bother us at all, but might bother some. There were other people on the trail, but it’s a tough one, so not too many. Very rewarding hike.

I hiked to the falls from the trail head at the foot of the mountain, not Skyline... and I only went to the falls and back (about 3 miles round trip). The hike itself is not super exciting since it’s a fire road, though it was still prettier than some fire road trails I’ve done in Shenandoah. There were spots that were kind of overgrown. The waterfall was pretty underwhelming. I still enjoyed the hike, though, because I had complete solitude until running into a family at the falls (on a Friday morning in July). I saw/heard lots of birds. Pros: shaded, wide trail in most spots since it’s a fire road, lots of birds Cons: not the prettiest trail or falls

It’s easy to miss the falls, they are about half way down the trail

Beautiful variety...some brooks and overlooks. It’s a bit touch on the knees going down and there is a bit of an uphill that gets old fast, but I would do it again. Moderately difficult

The hike was strenuous but very rewarding! My dog enjoyed swimming by the waterfall. Took us about 6 hours to finish but be careful! We were stung by yellow jackets on our way back up the mountain and made the last 3 hours a little rough.

Awesome hike. Hiked to the lower falls on a hot summer day and loved swimming in the pools under the waterfall. Highly recommend.

Easy walk down a fire road to the top of the falls. You have to scramble down to get to the bottom of the falls, about 80 ft.

Good low key hike. Very underwhelming waterfall. Boring after the fall.

HikingBugsRocky

Great exercise trail. The trail starts off of Skyline Dr. and the first 2 miles are downhill. The terrain quickly becomes quite rocky so watch your ankles. About a mile in, there is a nice waterfall off trail to the right. You can scramble down the hill a bit and get some nice views looking back up at the waterfall. Save some energy for the walk back which is all uphill. Bring bug spray.

Lovely waterfall - although you have to go off the fire road to see the cascades The mileage on this one is around 4.0 miles and it’s all down hill for 2 and then back up - still a very nice peaceful walk - especially after the falls, you may not see anyone else!

6/13/2020-Beautiful 0 humidity day for hiking. The trail begins at the wooden structure at the top of Ms. Shirley’s way. There are cement steps. I parked across from the playground and the pool. It’s mostly uphill for about 2 miles. It’s a beautiful trail with lots of wildflowers, creeks for the dogs, and a challenging incline. Last mile and a half is on a gravel road and then a paved road, but I didn’t have any problem with that because the houses up there are delightful. I met a woman on her way up to her house so it was a nice way to end the day. By the way, my hike registered over 10 miles. My GPS was correct this time (other times it’s been screwy) so I don’t know why Alltrails says it’s two miles less.
