Trail shared by Larry W. Brown

A gradually sloping trail with one very steep switchback near the Brown Mountain Trail, south of Rocky Mt.

Family Friendly While the whole trail may be a bit much for younger kids, taking this route partway is scenic and pleasant.

Description

This blue-blazed trail stretches gradually between Brown Mountain Trail and Big Run Portal Trail. With around 1000' of elevation change over the course of nearly three miles, this makes for a moderate descent or climb.

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.

The picture is deceptive - there's no rocky outcrop on this trail. It's just a descent along a stream.
