Description

Starting around one mile down Mathews Arm Trail, this trail begins its descent gradually. After about eight-tenths of a mile, the trail begins a more steep dive along Beecher Ridge, some 600' above the East Fork of Dry Run.

At around 2.5 miles, the trail will meet the Overall/Beecher Connector Trail, which leads to the north towards the Tuscarora-Overall Run Trail. Stay on this trail as it turns sharply to the left, with a small climb before crossing the East Fork of Dry Run and Moody Creek, at Keyser Hollow. The trail ends at the Heiskell Hollow Trail.

Thanks to Larry W. Brown, for sharing this trail description. If you’re interested in learning more details about great hikes, weather, camping / lodging, wildlife, and scenic drives, check out the comprehensive Guide to Shenandoah National Park.
