Family Friendly Moderate grades and a short distance make this trail doable for children.

Description

This fire road starts off of Skyline Drive and crosses between and across both the White Oak Canyon trail and the Limberlost Trail within a half mile of the Drive. Continuing down from the ridge, the road joins the Skyland-Big Meadows Horse Trail. Within a couple hundred yards to the north on the Skyland-Big Meadows Horse Trail, the fire road continues off to the right (east) as the Old Rag Road.

Thanks to Larry W. Brown, for sharing this 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.
