“A gradually sloping trail with one very steep switchback near the Brown Mountain Trail, south of Rocky Mt.”— Larry W. Brown
Family Friendly While the whole trail may be a bit much for younger kids, taking this route partway is scenic and pleasant.
Be ready for one steep section, less than three-tenths of a mile from the Brown Mountain Trail junction.
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.
