If you want to avoid the throngs of Old Rag hikers, this is a nice alternative trail. No views really, but the trail is often close to a stream. About 10% of this trail is actually hard, the remainder I would rate easy to moderate.

Great trail, tried it because it allowed dogs... not a lot of people on the trail, but those I encountered were super nice. I will try again in a few weeks to see how the leaves turn out. First hiking trail in Virginia !
