Description

This wide horse trail/fire road climbs steadily as it heads south from the White Oak Canyon Trail. Overall, the trail is a more manageable stretch with better footing and more room to hike with a larger group or to be on horseback.

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.
