HikingGreat!

One of my favorite hikes so far! Great views on the way up, lots of shade, and beautiful overlook at the top. Not too strenuous, and very fun! We did run into a mother black bear and two cubs about 25ft away, but they turned around and went the other way. Keep your eye out.

The trail was gorgeous! We saw a lot of wildlife and the trees and grass were very bright from all the rain we’ve been getting. Trail blazed do turn yellow as you continue towards the camp.

HikingGreat!

hit this one on a misting and foggy day, couldn't see a dang thing at the top but it was still worth it, since it was a short hike. it was actually kinda nice at the top. probably even better on a clear day

I hiked this today and was blown away by the amazing views for a true moderate hike. I parked at the overlook on Skyline Drive and went counterclockwise on the lollipop loop (All Trails goes clockwise)...and I would definitely do it this way again! The first half of the hike included the ridgeline and best views, which I appreciated more when I was still fresh and before it got super hot. It also gave me a steep descent and gradual ascent. I didn't see any wildlife of note, and only 3 people the entire time (all going clockwise). The trail itself was nice, a little overgrown in a few places and a little rocky on short stretches,, but most of it was dirt, lined with moss, and minimal rocks and roots. Several stream crossings but easily navigable. Definitely one of my favorite hikes!

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.

Very lush, peaceful, full of mountain laurel, mushrooms, and other forest gems.

BackpackingGreat!

I mean, how could you go wrong with a trip like this? Cedar Run, Hawksbill, and Old Rag all in one trip? Sign me the heck up! I split this up over two days and it was honestly pretty taxing, so it might be better to make it a 3 day if you don't like long days. I hiked this 8/1-8/2/2020, which you may notice is a Saturday-Sunday. Bad idea! Cedar Run and Hawksbill both seemed more like Disneyland than national parks with the amount of day hikers, so be warned. This route goes through the most popular (i.e. best) areas of the park, so a weekday trip would be preferable if possible. Day 1: 14.1 miles, White Oak Canyon trailhead to campsite near Hughes River on Nicholson Hollow Trail (38.60203, -78.34835). Hike up Cedar Run with a heavy pack was quite taxing, and without much respite until the summit of Hawksbill. After that, though, the AT section is pretty smooth sailing, just a rather long 10 miles or so. Take note that the AT is detoured through Skyland Resort for about a mile. Little Stony Man was definitely an unexpected gem, waiting right on the trail. There is no from roughly half a mile before the end of Cedar Run until Skyland. I filled 2 liters but you could probably squeeze by with 1. Day 2: 13.6 miles, Hughes River campsite to White Oak Canyon trailhead. I started hiking at 6:15am so I could do Old Rag without a massive horde of college students. The initial climb up Indian Run trail was honestly tough, but maybe that was just because I was stiff. Corbin Hollow trail to Old Rag trailhead was uneventful. Old Rag itself was, well, by far the hardest part of this trip. Already tuckered out from 20 miles previously, the switchbacks definitely took a toll. And the rock scrambles were very technically difficult with a pack on. On a few occasions I had to take it off and pass it through the crevasses or hand it to the kind people in front of me in order to get through. All things told it took about an hour, all for the summit to be too windy for me to eat lunch! After veering off from the Saddle Trail down, it's all fire roads, plus a mile on a paved road back to White Oak Canyon trailhead. If you're considering doing this trip, by far the most limiting consideration will be Old Rag. If you've never done it before, it may be worth checking out on a day hike to gauge whether you think you'll be able to do it with a pack on. If not, the route can be easily changed by continuing on Old Rag Fire Road and going up the Saddle Trail, which has no rock scrambles, to the summit

great hike with great views of the falls. we also added dark hallow falls which was amazing worth the .2 mile detour.

Highly recommended! Completed this hike on a cool June day. We began to the right, which serves as a wide rocky road, down the hill. The highlights are the two waterfalls- the Dark Hallows Falls and Rose River Falls, and an extended period where the trails runs parallel to the river, with dozens of small waterfalls and beautiful views. It is longer than listed- around 4.5 miles.

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.

Rip rap gives a delightful combination of views and water. Nice little fishing hole at the bottoms. Bring snacks!

This was a great half day hike with the family. Before we left I upgraded to the Pro All Trails account. Definitely worth it. I would have felt terrible if I added miles to the hike for the family. Also, saved a few others from going the wrong way, and the app had some cool features that I didn’t expect, to include a calorie tracker. The trail had a very refreshing swimming hole half way. Clockwise worked great for us.

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