Description

To access the blue-blazed Mathews Arm Trail, head out from the end of "B" loop in the Mathews Arm Campground. The trail heads mostly downhill from the campground until it ends at the Tuscarora-Overall Run Trail. Near the end, the trail crosses Overall Run, which leads down to the scenic stretch of cascades at Overall Run Falls.

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.
