Hiking

Went on a weekday mid-afternoon and found a parking space though lot was packed and parked cars backed up the roadside. We crossed the river about half a mile down the wide fire road and found a beautiful but busy swim hole just up the hill. Spent maybe 45 minutes there and ran into 7 families/groups—people sunbathing, sitting in giant pool floats, roasting marshmallows around a campfire, picnicking... I imagine social-distancing is not possible on a peak day or at a peak time. When we left around 6 pm, people were still arriving. We didn’t hike further to check out the falls.

Trail and parking were open on 6/29. Easy grade to the swimming hole and after that you can keep going up to the falls and it’s not crowded and not steep and about 4 miles r/t. Lovely riverside views and rushing water the whole way. Two crossings require taking shoes off or being willing to have soaked boots.

Arrived early (about 9am on a Saturday) with my 3 boys (17, 13, & 9). Great hike down. We only went to the upper falls. The hike back was a bit difficult after being stuck inside for several months. My own health issues (asthma & gastroparesis) didn’t help me much with that. But excellent spots to stop and rest. The cold water was super refreshing and helpful as well. When we made it back to the parking lot, around noon, it was PACKED. Highly recommend early hike!

Awesome trail. Got there by 9am. Parking lot was empty. By the time we returned at noon it was full. Trail was well kept. Some of the rocks were a bit slippery. Spotted a young black bear on the return.

Simple trail. Numerous bugs on the way up and quite a few medium spiders at the summit and near the scrambles. Spied a 4-5 foot black and yellow snake about a quarter mile to the summit that gave a bit of a startle. Scrambles are “off-trail” if it’s not your bag. There is a relatively interesting one on the other side of the summit from where you approach. Took about an hour and a half start to finish. This trail clocked in at just about 2.6 miles start to finish. Decent summit view. I’d tack this on to another trail. Also note that you’ll need a Nat’l Parks Pass or to pay the $30 per car entrance fee.

This was a great in and out hike with my pup. Trickling water sounds follow most of the way down. Nice and breezy and moderately trafficked. We only made it to the upper falls but it was lovely. Difficult coming back up, but worth it.

First hike in a while, and it was wonderful!! You can get to the first Waterfall pretty quick from the Jones Run Falls trailhead, about 2½ miles. The trail was pretty busy up till that point. After that, the traffic lightened a lot and we hardly passed anyone. We did the loop which was around 8½ miles total. Due to all the rain we've had, the trail was really wet and slick. Some of the path had turned into small rivers themselves and we had to cross some bigger slippery rocks to get to the next trail blaze. I wouldn't take children on this loop, it's moderate in difficulty and has some steep spots. Its was so peaceful and probably one of my favorites

Definitely more moderate to strenuous for younger kids less than 5.

Although it says closed on AllTrails, this trail is now open! Gorgeous trail and waterfalls.....it was heavily packed on a Saturday afternoon which meant lots of pulling off to the side of the trail to let people pass our 2 dogs. Although we didn’t mind at all, that is something to consider if you prefer more private trails! Downhill on the way in and all uphill on the way back. The stream crossings were enjoyable, a nice place to sit and rest a bit.

beautiful waterfalls! pretty challenging as it is steep the whole way down and that's how you get back up - but so worth it!! opportunities to get close to the falls if you want, just be careful and watch for slippery rock. also, we were at the bottom at around 3:30 on a Thursday and had the falls to ourselves which was awesome!

Good hike. My GPS didn't match up with the map listed here. There are several trails from the Turk Gap parking area. This one is across the street. Nice view with the rocks and overlook at the end. Took about an hour 15 min including hanging out at the overlook.

Great trail! Mostly downhill going in, especially the last mile or so. The waterfalls were gorgeous and not too dry. Hiked from 11-1ish and it wasn’t crowded at all. Not muddy like i was expecting. It was my first time hiking in Shenandoah and I loved everything about it. Hiking out was tough because all uphill but it was a great workout and totally worth it. Would definitely recommend! Can’t wait to go back up there and explore more trails

Really nice hike. It's downhill on the way to the waterfall and pretty steep. There are 2 waterfalls, the 2nd one is about a 1/2 a mile down from the 1st one.

Great views and beautiful hike. After 3.3 miles of downhill hiking you reach the waterfalls. Waterfalls can get a little crowded. The hike back up is steep. Great overall.

Great shaded trail to a number of waterfalls. It rained quite a bit last night so it was muddy, but still a great hike! Didn’t see any wildlife other than birds today.

Beautiful views! Quick and easy. But, as the review before me mentions... some big spiders on the rocks! I’m afraid of them, but maybe you aren’t :)
