Another review... You can complete a 14.8 mile loop hike by hiking up the Henley Hollow Trail, then turning right onto the Virginia Highlands Horse Trail. Once you get to FS14 turn right then hang a left and hike up the Dry Run Gap Trail. Some of this trail is the old road bed of Hwy 21. You will see a couple of old concrete bridges along the way. Continue on by turning left onto the Iron Mountain Trail to it's end at the Divide Trail, which takes you down the mountain back to Forest Service Road (FS14) which is where you will jump back onto the Virginia Highlands Horse Trail which will take you up to Horse Heaven and then back to the Henley Hollow Trail.
