Family Friendly The short nature of this trail along with the presence of waterfalls will keep the fun/effort ratio high for children.

Description

Though steep at times, this fire road was regraded around 2005 and has a manageable tread. The trail winds alongside Lands Run as it flows down toward the boundary of the park near Lands Run Road. Use this fire road to view the series of cascades that can be found on the Lands Run Falls hike.

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.
